The MSSW-MFT Specialization offers the opportunity for those pursuing their Masters Degree in Social Work to specialize in clinical practice with families in the context of their communities. The Specialization fulfills its mission by combining the systemic foundational principles of Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) with the goals and values of social work. This Specialization deliberately prepares students to utilize family therapy with those families who are disadvantaged and/or typically underserved. The curriculum meets course requirements for Kentucky licensure in MFT and for Clinical Membership in the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). Coursework focuses on theoretical foundations, practical applications, ethical responsibilities, integration of research, and supervised clinical practice.
