U.S. News & World Report Ranked Marriage and Family Therapy as One of the 50 Best Careers in 2010!
As the article explains, there is an expected 14% growth between 2008 and 2018, fueled by an increased acceptance of marriage and family therapy. It is encouraging to see that the field of marriage and family therapy is gaining both in recognition and growth. There are two very positive aspects to this report. First, during these tough economic times, it is good to see that our field is projected to get stronger. More employment opportunities is great news. Second, it is rewarding to see that our field is also gaining in market recognition. Getting the attention of such a major publication certainly reflects the dedication and hard work of so many marriage and family therapists. A hardy, "GREAT JOB" to everyone who has helped to advance the recognition of MFT through all types of advocacy efforts (federal, state, insurance, public)!
