AAMFT Fundamentals of Supervision Courses

AAMFT Approved Supervisors ensure a learning environment that is supportive and nurturing while providing therapists and trainees access to the latest innovations in the field.

As part of the application process, Clinical Fellows and Pre-clinical Fellows interested in the Approved Supervisor designation must complete a 30-hour Fundamentals of Supervision course. This course is comprised of a 15-hour didactic portion, a 15-hour interactive portion, and a personal philosophy of supervision paper. You must complete all three portions to receive a course completion certificate.

The personal philosophy of supervision paper is to be completed after both of the course components are finished and will be evaluated by the didactic course instructor. The paper must be completed within one year of beginning the didactic portion of the course, regardless of when the interactive portion is completed.

For more information on the Approved Supervision Program and its requirements please refer to the AAMFT Approved Supervision Handbook.
