Marriage and Family Therapy
The program prepares students as marriage and family therapists who are well grounded in systems theory and its application to clinical practice. The MFT program applies a diverse range of clinical and theoretical orientations that faculty members bring to the program. Particular attention is given to collaborative work with larger systems. Each student is encouraged to develop a personalized therapeutic orientation and style that integrate theory and technique. Faculty, students, and local mental health professionals work collaboratively with individuals and families on treatment teams in the ECU Family Therapy Clinic to develop and apply creative therapeutic strategies. Clinical faculty members provide weekly individual and group supervision of therapy conducted by students.
