CLINICAL FELLOW

Pink Sofa

Just because you are through the internships and licensure challenges, does not mean you don't need continued support. It can feel daunting to navigate the continued obstacles that clinical fellow members may feel.  This page is dedicated to resources specifically for members at this stage of their professional journey.

Questions? Call AAMFT at 703-838-9808 or email central@aamft.org. Be sure to have your member ID# handy or include it in your email! You may also contact WAMFT directly, at wamft@wamft.org

Supervision

Being a supervisor contributes so much to our field but also the future of our profession.  As you can see by the map, Washington State is in need of even more AAMFT Approved Supervisors.

If you are already a supervisor or candidate or you have been considering it, please check out the resources below to support you in this invaluable service to our Washington State community.

Connection

 

Throughout our training to become a Clinical Fellow we often had a structured way to connect.  Once we arrive at this stage of our career, we might need a little help to find ways to continue to connect, consult, and network.  WAMFT wants to help! Check out these resources below.

Networking

As a clinical fellow you may find it challenging to network with colleagues.  Check out what WAMFT has to offer in this area.

If you would like to present at an event or have questions please contact the Membership Chair, at wamft@wamft.org

Online Forum

Check out our WAMFT community forum.  You can browse the threads to connect on different clinical topics, supervision, referral questions, etc.

If you don't see a thread, you can add to the forum by adding a discussion

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Finding harmony within...

Reflection Through Broken Glass

Discernment Counseling

"In the consumer culture of marriage, commitments last as long as the other person is meeting our needs. We still believe in commitment, because we know that committed relationships are good for us, but powerful voices coming from inside and outside tell us that we are suckers if we settle for less than we think we need and deserve in our marriage. Most baby boomers and their offspring carry in our heads the internalized voice of the consumer culture-to encourage us to stop working so hard or to get out of a marriage that is not meeting our current emotional needs."

-William J Doherty

Family Dispute

Structural Family Therapy

"Certainty is the enemy of change.'

- Salvador Minuchin

Truss Structure

Anti-Racism

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

- Martin Luther King, Jr.
