Images/Events/Boston1.jpg
Take a break and join AAMFT in Boston, Massachusetts as we gather together to earn continuing education, network and study under an expert in the field of systemic family therapy. The Institutes are designed with the experienced clinician in mind and are presented by experts in the field. Participants study in one of four intensive courses that reflect the clinical challenges mental health professionals face today. Classes are intentionally kept small to create a personal and interactive setting. In addition, our opening and closing keynotes offer a wonderful opportunity to meet with the instructors and your fellow participants to exchange ideas and discuss today’s issues at length. Daily breakfast and lunch gatherings offer an excellent opportunity for networking with participants from across the globe.  We will also be hosting a Supervision Refresher for those that need to fulfill the required course for all approved Supervisors. The institutes are approved to provide 12 hours of continuing education with an additional 6 for those registering for the Supervision Refresher Course.

However, under the current regulations, these Americans are denied Medicare insurance coverage for over 40% of the therapy providers in the country. In a recent study conducted by AAMFT, over 85% of Americans aged 65 and older surveyed indicated that inclusion of LMFTs and LMHCs as Medicare providers would help seniors.

Join AAMFT for this special bonus interactive advocacy session where we highlight other findings from the study and together, we take action urging our members of Congress to ask for their support in LMFT inclusion in Medicare. .5 hours of continuing education is available.

2. Find out the most self-identified clinical issues facing older Americans today.

3. Learn more about potential inclusion of MFTs in Medicare.
