MFT or marriage and family therapy is regarded as one of the core areas of study and practice under the aegis of mental health, with an estimated 1.8 million people in the United States undergoing MFT counseling. This number is only expected to grow in the coming decade.
Referring to the form of psychotherapeutic treatment that addresses the behavior of family members and the impact of this behavior on other members in the family, MFTs are also known by many other names such as family counseling, marriage counseling, couples therapy and the like. MFTs help set right a variety of issues such as eating disorders, alcohol and drug abuse, couples’ conflicts, and any behavioral problems that children display. It also helps treat the consequences of these issues such as anxiety, depression and schizophrenia in not just the patients, but those surrounding and interacting regularly with the patient such as family and close friends.
To obtain a license in MFTs requires thorough training in psychotherapy. However, this license expires every 3 years and requires renewal in the form of meeting continuing education requirements set by the New York Board of Mental Health Practitioners and the American Counseling Association of New York.
