The goal of the department is to provide an educational experience that promotes the integration of knowledge and professional practice from the fields of human development and family science.

The Master of Family Therapy Graduate Program at Mercer University School of Medicine is offered in two locations, Macon and Atlanta, Georgia. It is designed to prepare family therapists to work with families, couples, and individuals in a wide variety of work settings including, but not limited to, hospitals, community mental health centers, substance abuse treatment centers, and private practice. The program is structured to meet the academic and experiential requirements for licensure as a marriage and family therapist in the state of Georgia, and to prepare students for the National Examination in Marital and Family Therapy (AMFTRB). Since the mid 1980's, the Macon campus has been training family therapists to work as members of integrated healthcare teams. Initial accreditation was awarded to the Macon campus of the program in 1997, and in 2009 an additional campus was opened and accredited in the Atlanta area. Mercer University's MFT Program is one of only three program in Georgia accredited by COAMFTE.

Program Mission: The Mercer University School of Medicine Masters of Family Therapy (MFT) program mission is to transform MFT and medical students into competent, compassionate and ethical professionals who work collaboratively to meet the needs of individuals, couples, families and communities, including the rural and underserved. Emphasizing interactive and case-based teaching strategies, our student-centered faculty provides a conceptual and practical foundation that equips graduates to be discerning consumers and innovative producers of knowledge across a variety of medical and other clinical settings, as well as academic institutions. This foundation prepares clinicians to articulate and utilize a wide variety of philosophical perspectives, theoretical orientations, and clinical modalities, all with sensitivity and responsiveness to diverse contextual factors that impact therapist and client systems, as well as institutions and communities in which they participate. Through scholarship and clinical outreach, students and faculty work closely to have local, regional, national, and global impact.

Valdosta State University Program Overview: The faculty, staff, and students of the Department of Marriage and Family Therapy are fully committed to nurturing the development of highly competent clinicians who work from a systemic/contextual perspective. The department fosters in students an authentic interest in their clients, therapeutic curiosity, awareness of ethical and therapeutic limitations, and the willingness to facilitate the self-determination of clients. The program curriculum and faculty members place a strong emphasis and value on diversity. We feel that mere tolerance of difference is not sufficient—we set a higher standard for our students. We believe that the differences that make up the rainbow of humanity must be embraced and cherished. The relationship between diversity and the variety of dominant cultural discourses such as ageism, classism, racism, sexism, heterosexism, and gender are woven throughout the fabric of our curriculum. MFT faculty members strive to explore with our students the ways that cultural and institutionalized discrimination are embedded in culture and language, exacerbating the treatment issues that clients present. We also examine the ways that issues of diversity and discrimination shape the context of therapy.
