Prepares students for careers as Marriage and Family Therapy at Central Connecticut State University. Clinical placements focus on developing therapeutic skills. Program meets academic and clinical requirements for CT licensure for marital and family therapists (LMFT) and AAMFT Clinical Membership.


The philosophy of the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Central Connecticut State University is that a student must integrate theories and techniques as tools for enhancing one's effectiveness as an agent of intervention and change. 

Learning outcomes

The program does so by interweaving theory and practice throughout the duration of the training process via graduated practical experiences while studying theory. Thus, through the process of study and practice, the student has an opportunity to incorporate a wide array of learning gradually and comprehensively. The end product of such training is a therapist who is well-grounded in theory and who has had nurturing through an on-going training and supervisory process to use him/herself effectively, professionally, and ethically as an agent of change at a variety of levels. A unique feature of the program is that we utilize a “common factors” approach based on a theoretical model called “Metaframeworks”, which provides a template for looking through different systemic “lenses” to make decisions regarding how to intervene to remove constraints preventing a person, couple, family or organization from making necessary changes for their well-being.


The program is nationally accredited by AAMFT's Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE).
