LifeTalkLearning provides an opportunity to gain additional self-awareness regarding the complexities of countertransference and family of origin issues so as to work more effectively with clients.

Due to the limited time constraints in attaining an academic degree, many courses consist of an overview of the literature that lacks the depth and understanding of extended study.


  • You may want to review information that you have already learned to enhance your knowledge of a specific theory or you may want to challenge yourself with new material on being a systemic therapist.
  • Create your own advanced MFT Independent Study based on what you want to learn.
  • The curriculum will be designed to further enhance your knowledge of family systems theories and practices in the clinical setting.
  • Your study may be accomplished individually and/or in a small group setting to reach your goal.
  • The study can be completed in a combination of in-person sessions, on the telephone, and by e-mail.
