DMFT-8951 - DMFT Doctoral Practicum

Semester Credits: 3 Weeks: 12

This course provides DMFT students with an opportunity to engage in ongoing advanced therapeutic practice. Emphasis is placed on the continued development of therapy and assessment skills, theoretical integration, and personal growth. Because all students must have at least a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy or related discipline to register for this course, we assume all students are at least minimally competent as clinicians. The emphasis in the DMFT Practicum is on continued growth, and development in professional identity as a doctoral level therapist. Students with an LMFT license (or equivalent) are not required to have an on-site supervisor. All other students must have an on-site supervisor. All students will participate weekly in the NCU online supervision group, and students who are not LMFTs will also meet at least weekly with their on-site supervisor. All students must be clinically active throughout Practicum, though there are no specific hours requirements. All students must document what they actually do. If students are using the DMFT Practicum to work toward full licensure as LMFTs, they must be sure that they are also meeting the appropriate State regulatory board requirements for Associate license (or equivalent) supervision.
