Systemic Organizational Leadership, DMFT

Systemic Organizational Leadership Specialization


The Doctorate of Marriage and Family Therapy (DMFT) program is designed to help you develop your critical thinking and research skills while providing you with the knowledge, practical application, and values that will shape you into a competent, ethical, and culturally sensitive marriage and family therapist. The Systemic Organizational Leadership specialization  is designed to prepare you to assume a leadership role. This is a non-clinical specialization—students will complete their practicum and internship in organizational settings and activities, rather than clinical work. Students in this specialization will also focus their course assignments and doctoral project on issues related to systemic leadership.
