Ethics for Marriage and Family Therapists

Green Clock Hours: 2.00 - 2.25

Providing marriage and family therapy (MFT) can be highly rewarding work that allows practitioners to help couples and families resolve conflicts, enhance their ability to communicate with each other, and establish healthy dynamics. The practice of MFT also involves a unique set of circumstances that can pose challenges for providers, namely, that the provider’s professional obligations extend to multiple individuals. It is therefore essential that as an MFT, you understand the ethical standards of your profession. This course blends didactic material with interactive exercises to help you to stay on top of recent changes in MFT ethics by reviewing relevant ethics standards, discussing issues and trends, and giving you opportunities to test your knowledge.

In such a professional climate, and where the well-being of clients is of paramount importance, it is critical for you to understand the major guiding standards of your professional ethics code. This course will examine some of the major tenets of that ethics code.

Additionally, bear in mind that as you review the course material, while the term “marriage therapy” is used throughout in keeping with the verbiage of the ethics code, the issues discussed also apply when working with unmarried and same-sex couples. The course material also applies to MFT practice when providing services to families and to clients seeking individual counseling to address their relationship issues.
