100 Helpful Websites on Marriage & Family Therapy

100 Helpful Websites on Marriage & Family Therapy | Resilient Relationships | Scoop.it

Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) has become a wildly popular career choice for people interested counseling, psychology, and even social work. The field is expected to see a whopping 29% job growth rate over the next decade, and counselors with a master’s degree will be the first in line for new careers in this field.

One of the most appealing factors about marriage and family therapy is getting to work with diverse clients and help them achieve real, positive change in their lives and relationships through a variety of techniques, including:

  • Individual and group therapy sessions with couples and families
  • Communication counseling and traditional psychotherapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy and attachment theory

Many successful MFT maintain websites for their practices to find new clients and participate in the increasingly active community of MFTs online and on social media. These sites represent therapists, practices, and publications related to all aspects of this quickly developing field.

Great resource for improving communication skills in your relationship. Bruce uses the metaphor of a tennis game to show how to be a better listener and communicator. Great tool!

Dr. Amy Fuller's curator insight, July 10, 2013 12:34 PM

Check out this great video with an excellent metaphor for healthy communication...tennis! Just like only one person can serve at a time in the game of tennis, healthy communication works best when one person is the speaker and one person is the listener. 

Enjoy! Amy Fuller PhD
