Everytime I sign on to the boards, I read postings about people who are unsure about curriculum, practice, training, etc. For those of you who have not found what you are looking for in counseling, social work, or psychology... I offer you MFT information... these are from my undergrad institution and before I decided to go for the doctorate, I was going to go back to this program for more specific training.

I do not know if all MFT programs are this specific. To my knowledge, LMFT's are paid no MORE than LCSW's, LPA's, or LPC's.... I only have one close friend who is an LMFT and she attended this program.

Hope this helps some of you find something you feel more comfortable with curriculum wise...
