DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH (DOH)
WAMFT invites its members to subscribe to get email or text alert notifications of information about rule making and other topics related to Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) from WA State DOH.
Rules are also known as regulations, Washington Administrative Code, or WAC. The rules writing process is open to the public. The public is welcome to take part in helping us write rules. The rule-making process includes public notices and workshops, and usually a public hearing before a rule becomes final.
