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.

Special Note: We highly encourage you to write from a position of authentic marriage and family therapy, using MFT/systemic vocabulary, techniques, and concepts. In the near future we will only accept content that meets this requirement.
