Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
The mission of the Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT) Degree Program is to train persons with theological/spiritual commitments to become marriage and family therapists competent to practice in a diverse, multicultural and interfaith world. Marriage and Family Therapy is framed as a professional expression of the church's ministry of pastoral care and counseling. Individuals trained in the MAMFT program gain theoretical and practical tools to work as comprehensive mental health providers in a broad range of treatment contexts with careful attention to human, family and cultural diversity. To this end, the MAMFT program is built on a foundation of the following five Professional Marriage and Family Therapy Principles: the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) Educational Guidelines, the AAMFT Core Competencies, the AAMFT Code of Ethics, the Association of Marital and Family Therapy Regulatory Board's (AMFTRB) Examination Domains, Task Statements and Knowledge Statements, and the Commonwealth of Kentucky Statutes.
