Certification and Membership in AAMFT

Council for Relationships awards a Certificate of Completion to those interns who have successfully met the requirements of the program. This represents completion of all course work, supervision and supervised clinical hours required by AAMFT. A transcript is available upon request for submission to the state for MFT licensure and to AAMFT for clinical membership.

The 500 clinical face to face contact hours count as 1000 hours of clinical service for Pennsylvania state licensure. The remaining hours are typically fulfilled by clinical practice either concurrent with or upon completion of the program.

Students in the program are eligible for Student-level membership in the professional  organization for Marriage and Family Therapists, AAMFT (the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists).  Graduation from the program establishes eligibility for membership at the Pre-Clinical Fellow level.  Upon attaining a license as a Marriage and Family Therapist, clinicians become eligible for membership in AAMFT as Clinical Fellows.
