Marriage and long-term relationships have always faced challenges, but never more so than today with definitions continually evolving. The Couple Therapy DMFT specialization is designed to prepare you to work primarily with couples in therapy settings from a family therapy and/or family systems perspective. With these goals in mind, you will be required to focus your course projects, internship work and dissertation research on issues related to working with couples desiring to repair or build their relationship. Through your online coursework and offline practicum within your community, you will be challenged to develop competencies and sensitivities to the particulars of working with couples facing challenges in their relationships.
