The Family Therapists in Schools Interest Network exists to support AAMFT members in connecting, networking, and sharing knowledge about school-based practice. We support local legislative efforts and attempts to allow MFTs to be hired into public and private educational settings. Our goals are:
· to promote school training for MFTs
· to help MFTs currently in schools connect with and support each other
· build knowledge among legislators, administrators, and staff about the need for family therapy in schools
· increase employment opportunities for family therapists in schools.
