The Mildred A. Flashman Family Therapy Certificate Program:

Social Sciences
The field of family therapy has grown and diversified in the last three decades. Building on its traditional interest in the family as a basic unit of service, social work has made significant contributions to the development of both theory and practice in the field of marital and family therapy. Social workers are among the contemporary leaders in the field of family and marital therapy.

The Family Therapy Certificate Program (FTCP) offers specialized courses, colloquia, and a field placement geared toward understanding and treating children, families, couples, and individuals in a systemic context. The program allows students to focus on family-centered practice with populations of their own interest, with an emphasis on working with families in an urban environment.

The Certificate Program requires three clinical courses in family and child or couple’s therapy. In addition, coursework on the family is required in social policy and human behavior. The second-year field placement takes place in a setting that includes working with families and receiving family systems supervision. FTCP students also are expected to participate in colloquia and meetings scheduled on Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout the academic year. The School will award a certificate of completion to students who take the required courses and complete the second-year family therapy field placement.
