An Important Reminder from the MFT Faculty

It is the expectation of the MFT Faculty that you will use journals from the field of Couple and Family Therapy as your primary sources.

You may of course, find additional sources in Psychology and/or Social Work journals but please note that often the focus of these articles is not systemic and will have more of an individual, perhaps even medical model, focus.

If you are unsure of using a specific reference, please check with any of the faculty members in our department.
