AAMFT Clinical Case Consultations

AAMFT clinical case cosulltations logo

AAMFT’s Clinical Case Consultations allow practicing MFTs from all over the world to talk directly with their peers. The interactive video-conferencing format permits participants to connect and network with colleagues around topics of interest from the comfort of their own home or office. 

In the early days of the profession stimulating conversations among MFTs were common.  These Clinical Case Consultations create the opportunity to again have such conversations. MFTs can log on and effortlessly share clinical experiences with other practicing clinicians.

Topic Discussions and Available Dates

Providing in Rural Settings

The small size of rural communities can contribute to specific challenges that arise involving confidentiality, clients’ rights, client-provider relationships, and distribution of limited resources.  Use this discussion group to engage with other clinicians to explore these topics or others that interest you.

Next available sessions:

  • Thursday, March 24, 2016 at 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. Eastern
  • Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Eastern

Cost: $10 members/ $20 non-members


Providing for Adolescent Clients

Adolescents have their own unique needs, and working with them can be both greatly challenging and immensely rewarding.  This discussion group will be a place to address topics such as aggressive behaviors, substance abuse, home/school boundaries, and involvement of parents in therapy, or to have the opportunity to just visit with other clinicians.

Next available sessions:

  • Tuesday, April 5, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Eastern

Approved Supervision Consultation Groups

Managing supervision requires a different type of awareness of multi-systemic issues.  In this discussion group you can meet with other MFT supervisors and explore topics such as gatekeeping, dealing with difficult supervisees, recordkeeping, supervision context, mentoring, or whatever is of interest to you.

Next available sessions:

  • Thursday April 28, 2016 at 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. Eastern
