Writing for Family Therapy Magazine

How Do I Write for FTM?

Family Therapy magazine is AAMFT's bimonthly magazine produced exclusively for members of the association. FTM's readers are clinicians at the postgraduate (master's and doctoral) level who have an average of 10-15 years of professional experience. Current circulation is approximately 25,000.

Before writing an article for FTM, please check with the editor to identify upcoming topics. Articles are organized and planned by an editorial team, and special guidance and instructions are given to each author so that articles are produced within the proper topic area and to ensure that topics do not overlap. Article topics are established based on how relevant and useful the information will be to marriage and family therapists. See our author guidelines for more information.

Guidelines for Short Articles

We are currently looking for authors to contribute articles related to foundations of the field of family therapy. Many decades have passed since the founding pioneers developed the early concepts of systemic interventions, and those early models have grown and changed over time. How are the early founders, their approaches and impact still felt today in MFT? Has the field remained true to the early visions of the founders, or has it strayed far from the original path? If you have thoughts on this topic and wish to share your views with other MFTs, contact the editor for more information on writing.
