News for MFT Exam Candidates during COVID-19: May 1—New testing dates released.

AMFTRB is…

The Association of Marriage and Family Therapy Regulatory Boards (AMFTRB) is the association of state licensing boards governing the regulation of LMFTs. We develop and administer the MFT National Examination used by jurisdictions as one of the requirements to license candidates. We coordinate among state boards developing policy guidelines for regulatory issues two of which are what a licensing board would want to consider in promulgating rules and laws about mobility for licensees and teletherapy practice. We support our 52 member boards (all states, the District of Columbia, and Guam) in their mandate to protect the public by establishing initial licensure requirements, insuring clinical competency of licensees, managing renewals, handling disciplinary action, and revising statutes and regulations.

To this end, we perform a variety of services including providing a clearinghouse for information and research, producing and maintaining the Marriage and Family Therapy National exam, and facilitating communication among our stakeholders. In addition, the members of AMFTRB continually explore current regulatory issues, such as telemental health and licensure portability, offering suggestions and guidelines to assist regulators as they make important decisions that impact the profession of marriage and family therapy.
