This unique specialization provides a deeper look at tools, resources, and contexts for working with family systems that include LGBTQ members.

”I had a full time job. I was raising three children. I’m a single mom, and I decided to go back to school and get my master’s degree. It worked in my world and in my schedule. I knew that every Sunday I had a paper due. I knew exactly what I had to complete and it worked better for me that way, so I could set aside the time that I needed every week for whatever I knew I had to get done in the syllabus. So, for someone like me, it was the perfect program.” -Galit Rozen, Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (2016)
