TAMFT 2021 Conference Is Going Virtual!

The Texas Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (TAMFT) is taking the 2021 Annual Conference online March 4-6, 2021 to ensure a safe, accessible experience where you can learn, network, and grow with fellow MFTs. Although we wish we could be together in person, TAMFT is focused on creating a dynamic, immersive experience for our members.

The 2021 Conference experience will be hosted online Thursday, March 4, through Saturday, March 6 (see tentative schedule here). Attendees can expect high-quality professional learning, creative community building experiences, actionable ideas, and practical tools to help you address the needs of your clients. More than 15.5 CEUs will be available, including keynote sessions by master LMFTs Elliott Connie and Dr. Tequilla Hill.

Standing in Solidarity: Confronting the Uncomfortable isn’t just about our work with clients. It’s also about our role as agents of social change, as allies, our responsibility to address biases, marginalization, and systemic racism within ourselves, and within our communities. How are we addressing systemic racism and oppression within the MFT system? How are we reaching out to and elevating the voices of our marginalized colleagues? How are we addressing barriers to becoming an MFT that exist for minorities?

TAMFT Information on Teletherapy and COVID-19

The TAMFT Board of Directors encourages MFTs to keep themselves safe and mindful of others as we navigate through the coronavirus crisis. When families come to see you or, if you talk with them face to face, through teletherapy, or virtually via video conferencing over the next few weeks, the tips in this letter from our TAMFT President may help. 

If you do plan to pursue teletherapy, the Texas State Board of Examiners of Marriage and Family Therapists requires MFTs to have 15 hours of training to perform teletherapy. TSBEMFT has petitioned the Governors Office for a suspension of the rules related to training requirements and waits for Governor Abbotts approval.

TAMFT has been working diligently with our Mental Health partners during this time. You can keep up with information on the status of teletherapy requirements in Texas on our Latest News page.

In the meantime, TSBEMFT and TAMFT encourage you to learn the basics of teletherapy before proceeding and guidelines laid out in Texas Administrative Code for technology-assisted services (TAS), including specific informed consent rules for technology-assisted services. Seek out online trainings, including our free course for TAMFT members, so you can offer teletherapy as an alternate modality in light of the current situation.
