La Salle's Marriage and Family Therapy program strives to prepare professionals with abilities and competencies requisite for the practice of marriage and family therapy. The curriculum emphasizes a conceptualization of the role of an individual in primary relationships, such as marriage and the family. Students are provided with course work and clinical experiences, which encourages them to examine the complex interplay of all forces (scientific, interpersonal, and spiritual) which coexist within and exert influence on an individual and on a family system. The goals are to prepare marriage and family therapists who will competently develop and implement comprehensive interventions, acquire a holistic perspective to health care, understand the complexity of addressing the overall, long-term well-being of individuals and their families, evaluate and treat mental and emotional disorders, and address a wide array of relationship issues that will best meet the needs of clients within the context of a family system.

The Seton Hill University Marriage and Family Therapy program is guided by a commitment to understanding and respecting cultural diversity. We work from the premise that human differences are important and valuable. Therefore the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Seton Hill is designed to educate students in family systems theory and clinical techniques with special emphasis upon understanding family process within a broader socio-cultural context.

What distinguishes marriage and family therapists from other disciplines is this emphasis on relationships as an important factor for mental health. What distinguishes Seton Hill's Marriage and Family Therapy Program from other, similar programs is a training model committed to social diversity and development of the self of the therapist as the most essential tool in clinical work.

This emphasis is consistent with the University's graduate studies philosophy, which encourages students to recognize multi-cultural contexts and the role of privilege and oppression. We also encourage students to become aware of their personal values and how these values affect professional practice, in order that they may act responsibly as agents of social change.

We believe in the power of relationships - within families, and among individuals - and we prepare clinicians who work from a systemic and relational perspective in addressing issues related to mental health. Our belief in the power of relationships means we work to create a learning environment that is collaborative, diverse and empowering. This is not only our educational strategy; it is also our way of living our values.
