For Students & The New MFT...
The Difference Is...
Marriage and Family Therapists (MFT) are mental health specialists who treat and diagnose a host of disorders related to psychotherapy and mental health. For this reason MFTs are held to strict licensure requirements, which include at least a master's level education in the field or related field as well as a period of supervised clinical practice. Licensure requirements vary by state, though many are similar having modeled their requirements after the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy recommendations.
