Medical issues and all that accompanies them can often emotionally overwhelm a family. The Medical Family Therapy DMFT specialization is designed to prepare students to work with individuals, couples, and families who are facing chronic or acute medical challenges. Medical Family Therapy incorporates a family therapy and/or systems perspective in order to help client families understand and deal with their medical difficulties. With this important goal in mind, you will be required to focus your course projects, internship work and dissertation research on issues related to medical family therapy. Through your online coursework and offline practicum within your community, you will be challenged to develop the skills necessary for working with families who face diverse medical challenges.
