3 Department Educational Model and Goals The MFT Program The Master s of Arts in Clinical Psychology, Marital and Family Therapy specialization (MACP MFT) is a practitioner-scholar model program that requires 48 unites of course work and successful completion of a comprehensive examination. In addition, students complete a 250 hour clinical practicum in which they receive supervision from their site supervisors and case consultation from Chicago School faculty in a seminar format. The MACP MFT program in Southern California meets the requirements set forth by the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) which regulates licensure for Marriage and Family Therapists in the state of California. Additional requirements beyond the completion of the master s degree must be completed in order to obtain licensure, primarily post-degree supervised clinical experience. Students may fulfill their practicum, traineeship, and internship hours at The Chicago School s Counseling Centers in Westwood and Irvine. Developed around an innovative apprentice model, the centers offer students the opportunity to work side by side with senior clinicians in the psychology and marriage and family therapy fields as they apply classroom theories in a real-world environment. The model is unique in the breadth and depth of experience it offers; students are not limited to a single treatment philosophy and instead are exposed to a wide variety of therapeutic approaches and clinical interventions. They work with populations that are diverse in background, socioeconomic status, age, gender and treatment needs, and develop a working knowledge in a variety of clinical sub-specialties, such as child and adolescent psychology, substance abuse assessment and treatment, intensive outpatient therapy, and more. During their internships and practicum placements, students benefit from an unusually rich learning experience that includes intensive mentoring by seasoned practitioners, and that prepares them to work in variety or professional environments or to launch private practices of their own. The degree can be completed in two full years with varying delivery options depending upon the campus. At the Los Angeles campus, students may select either two evenings a week or one full day a week. At the Westwood campus, students may select two days per week or every other weekend and at the Irvine Campus, students may select two evenings a week or every other weekend. Under the umbrella of the practitioner-scholar model, the program organizes the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for high quality clinical practice into seven competencies that correspond to our institutional goals of scholarship, diversity, professional behavior and ethics, and professional practice. The NCSPP s Core Competency Model (McHolland, 1992) offers the foundation upon which the program based its own articulation of competency. In addition, the program adheres to the core competencies as outlined by the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT) which are as follows: 1) Admission to Treatment All interactions between clients and therapist up to the point
4 when a therapeutic contract is established. 2) Clinical Assessment and Diagnosis Activities focused on the identification of the issues to be addressed in therapy. 3) Treatment Planning and Case Management All activities focused on directing the course of therapy and extra-therapeutic activities. 4) Therapeutic Interventions All activities designed to ameliorate the clinical issues identified. 5) Legal Issues, Ethics, and Standards All aspects of therapy that involve statutes, regulations, principles, values, and mores of MFTs. 6) Research and Program Evaluation All aspects of therapy that involve the systematic analysis of therapy and how it is conducted effectively. The MA in Clinical Psychology, Marital and Family Specialization introduces students to basic clinical skills that enable them to serve the mental health needs of populations with diverse backgrounds. Students who use the master s degree as a means of entering a professional career receive theoretical background and professional training under the supervision of a highly qualified, practitioner-oriented faculty. The graduates of this program are then able to apply theoretical and clinical knowledge to individuals and groups in need of mental healthcare. The Master of Arts degree often serves as a preliminary step to the doctorate degree. For these students, the program serves as a foundation for work beyond the master s degree level and enables them to determine their interest in, and suitability for, the pursuit of more advanced study. Finally, the program meets the recommendations of the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS), the licensing agency for Marriage and Family Therapists, for inclusion of the following into the curriculum: Focus on wellness, recovery, resilience Cultural competence Consumer/family driven services Consumer/family members integrated throughout the mental health system Community collaboration. TCSPP Individual and Cultural Differences The MFT Profession The MACP MFT prepares students to become marriage and family therapists, with an emphasis on family systems and recovery and resilience. MFT s are distinct from other types of mental health professionals in several ways: 1. an emphasis on treating individuals within
5 the context of their relationships; 2. an emphasis on the way in which relational dynamics as they are exhibited in the family system contribute to present day difficulties; and 3. a focus on an interpersonal response to mental health issues that includes the family, community and other important relationships to the client. Graduates of MFT programs work in agencies, community mental health counseling centers, private practices, school systems and are also qualified to work in the Veterans Administration mental health programs. Many students also go on to do doctoral work. For more information about the profession, visit the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) or California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) websites. Following are definitions of the MACP MFT program competencies. Scholarship Research and Evaluation: Competency in research and evaluation is indicated by the ability to organize, synthesize and interpret scholarly information; the ability to design and critique approaches to systematic inquiry; the awareness of limits of certainty in different types of clinical inquiry; the understanding of foundational scientific knowledge in the field; and the recognition of scholarly knowledge production as a social, cultural and political process. Finally, scholarly findings should guide/direct clinical practice/interventions. Consultation and Education: Competency in consultation and education is indicated by effective presentation skills and the ability to teach others through oral or written presentation of material; the ability to provide feedback regarding a client or system issue to multiple sources; an understanding of the means of facilitating and evaluating the growth of knowledge, skills, and attitudes in a learner; effective peer consultation and constructive feedback; and the development of productive relationships within community helping networks. Diversity Cultural and Individual Differences: Students recognize that culture is best understood from a broad perspective and includes, but is not limited to, identities related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, religious belief, and ability. It is evidenced by the ability to articulate one s personal culture and its impact on held values, relationships and worldview; an understanding of worldview, and the psychological impact of privilege, prejudice, oppression, culture and sociopolitical structures; the ability to differentiate between individual variation, characteristic variation across culture and human dysfunction in development, attitudes and reactions; and appreciation for the impact of culture on the historical and philosophical foundations of psychology. Professional Behavior and Ethics Competency in ethical and professional behavior is evidenced by the ability to apply ethical and professional standards to relationships with clients and with others (peers, supervisors, faculty, professionals in other disciplines, etc); socialization into the profession through advisement, modeling and education and membership in professional organizations; an understanding of legal obligations that may or may not
6 conflict with ethical guidelines; the development of skills in self-awareness, reflective practice and quality control; effective functioning in multiple professional roles; and commitment to life-long learning. Professional Practice Relationship: Competency in relationship is indicated by the capacity to develop and maintain a constructive therapeutic alliance with clients and a constructive working alliance with others (including peers, faculty, supervisors, professionals in other disciplines, etc); openness to feedback and accurate self-reflection; an appreciation of the use of self in a therapeutic relationship; the development of empathy, respect for others, and interpersonal relatedness; and an understanding of cultural values, worldview, and history in cross-cultural relationships. Assessment: Assessment is conceptualized to include both formal and informal assessment activities. Competency in assessment is indicated by proficiency in the interpretation of standard assessment tools; the collection and incorporation of information from multiple sources to inform decision making and diagnosis; effective clinical inference that links gathered data with resulting diagnosis and recommendations; effective communication of assessment results and recommendations; the identification and conceptualization of client strengths and limitations; and culturally sensitive choice of assessment methods that will comprise a formal assessment. Intervention: Competency in intervention is indicated by the ability to develop and present plausible formulations for understanding psychological phenomenon using theory; use theory to guide formulations regarding the conditions that create, maintain, and change behavior or distress; effectively implement and revise treatment strategies; evaluate the effectiveness of a chosen intervention approach or strategy; recognize the limitations of theories as they relate to individual and system functioning and change; and adjust traditional models of treatment and treatment planning to better meet diverse clients needs. Ethics and Professional Behavior The Chicago School expects that all clinical MFT students will be knowledgeable of and adhere to the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, as published by the American Psychological Association, as well as the Code of Ethics of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. In addition, no student shall obtain part- or fulltime employment that is beyond the scope of their cumulative training in the field of psychology or MFT and shall not use titles governed by licensure statutes, unless so licensed by the state. A student who fails to adhere to this policy or otherwise fails to demonstrate the appropriate ethics required for practice in the field of professional counseling is subject to discipline and possible removal.
7 Typical Course Load On average a student will take 8 units per semester, with a range between 7 and 9 units. Students should plan to dedicate 3 hours of study for every 1 hour in the classroom, including activities such as site visits, role plays, research and writing. Though the program is designed to allow students to work while they attend school, flexibility is required particularly in the area of practicum placement. Courses are determined by a pre-determined course sequence designed to insure that students are learning the materials in they need to be successful in subsequence courses and in the program as a whole. MFT Licensure in California Requirements for obtaining an MFT license are determined by the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) in Sacramento. The BBS also issues licenses to practice. Licensing requirements change periodically and students are urged to sign up for updates issued by the BBS. While the MACP MFT program attempts to disseminate the most current licensing requirements to its students, ultimately students are responsible for remaining informed. The best way to do this is to join the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) as well as the local area chapter. Information for membership can be found on the CAMFT website a Current requirements for licensing include: 1. A Master s or Doctorate degree with a specialization in Marital and Family Therapy. The MACP MFT degree at the Chicago School campuses in Southern California meets the educational requirements for California licensure hours of supervised experience. The supervisor must be licensed for a minimum of 2 years as an MFT, a licensed psychologist, a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or a psychiatrist. The 250 practicum hours count toward the 3000 hour total. Pregraduate hours must be done in an agency setting. Post-degree hours can be done with a supervisor in private practice if desired. 3. Upon completion of the degree and the supervised hours, the candidate must pass two licensing examination given by the BBS and pay the appropriate fees. Students are encouraged to do volunteer work in community agencies throughout their program as this will not only enrich their understanding of the field but may assist in placement in practicum and internship sites.
8 MFT Practicum The practicum experience is designed to meet both the BBS requirements as well as to enhance the learning experience of the student through practical application of didactic classroom instruction. The practicum require three credit hours for two semesters - a total of six credit hour during which time the student participates in a clinical training field placement where the student accumulates a minimum of 250 face to face hours of supervised clinical experience in a mental health setting. In addition, the student is required to attend a regularly scheduled practicum seminar during which students will participate in clinical case consultation, case presentations and complete a clinical case report. At the end of the second practicum seminar, students will complete a Clinical Competency Evaluation (CCE) which consists of a full clinical case report, tape and transcripts as well as a presentation of this case to the class and instructor. The CCE provides an important assessment of a student s competency in meeting key programmatic outcomes Establishing Readiness for Practicum During the semester prior to starting practicum, students will take a Readiness for Practicum Examination. Permission to take the Readiness of Practicum exam is predicated upon successful completion of courses with a B- or better taken in the first year. This is a one hour written examination in which students respond to a clinical vignette and answer questions related to four key areas: 1. Law and Ethics; 2. Diagnosis; 3. Theory and application; and 4. Treatment planning. Students can earn up to 3 points per question, with a minimum of 7 points total to pass the exam. Students must earn a minimum of 1 point in Law and Ethics in order to pass, regardless of the total points otherwise earned. If a student fails the examination, they must wait until the next semester to re-take the examination and postpone practicum. Generally this means the student will need to go through the practicum placement procedure again. Transfer of credit for the practicum is not granted and practicum requirements are never waived. Further details regarding this area are found in the Practicum/Internship Manual available from the director of clinical training. Requirements for Beginning Practicum Among other requirements, students will need to complete the following before beginning practicum: 1. Complete with a grade of B- or better a minimum of 24 hours of credit units before beginning their practicum experience. 2. Pass the Practicum Readiness examination. 3. Approval of the faculty. If it is determined that a student is not ready to start practicum, a meeting will be scheduled with the student, faculty advisor and the clinical training department to discuss an alternative plan.
9 4. Attend the practicum orientation meeting prior to starting the practicum placement process. During the meting you will be told about the various sites, and about the procedures for interviewing for these positions. Practicum Placement Students must express their intent to apply for practicum and traineeship in writing to the Office of Applied Professional Practice. Students will participate in practicum placement prior to their completion of their first year but are expected to successfully pass all their pre-requisite coursework and pass the Practicum Readiness examination prior to beginning work at their practicum site. If any of the first year courses are not passed with a grade of B- or better, they must be retaken within 12 months and successfully completed with a grade of B- or better. Dismissal from the Practicum Site Students are strong advised to treat practicum as they would any other professional obligation. Students have an ethical duty to their clients and to their sites and are expected to seek consultation from their supervisors and faculty if difficulties are encountered. The earlier a student seeks appropriate consultation, the better the outcome will be. Dismissal from a practicum s considered extremely serious, will result in immediate referral to the Placement and Training Committee, and may result in dismissal from the school. Practicum Seminar Practicum seminar (MM610 and MM615) is a 2 semester sequence that is completed during the student s final year of the program. While enrolled in Practicum, students work in a community agency seeing clients with supervision from agency supervisors and clinical consultation from faculty. Students will receive one hour of supervision for each five hours of clinical work at the site. Both individual and group supervision may be offered at the site. During the year, students are expected to acquire 250 hours of experience at their sites. Counseling Competency Examination (CCE) Students are assessed at various times throughout the program to insure that programmatic outcomes are being met throughout the curricula. These are as follows: 1. Course outcome assessments. At the end of each course, instructors complete a course outcomes assessment that evaluates each student in light of program outcomes. Instructors assign a numerical value ranging from 1-4 for each outcome for each student in the course. This helps to insure alignment of each course with programmatic and institutional outcomes. 2. Practicum Readiness Examination. Toward the end of their third semester, students will take a Practicum Readiness Examination to assess their basic knowledge of 4 key areas of clinical practice: law and ethics, diagnosis, theory and application and treatment planning. This examination must be passed with a minimum score of 7 out of a possible 12, and a minimum score of 1 on the Law and Ethics question.
10 3. Clinical Competency Evaluation (CCE). At the end of their second practicum course, students will have completed a Clinical Competency Evaluation (CCE) comprised of a Clinical Case Report, tape and 10-minute transcript, and a formal oral presentation of that case to the seminar students and instructor. Students must pass the CCE in order to pass practicum. The CCE assesses a student s competency in all areas of clinical treatment and application. 4. Written Comprehensive Examination. Once students toward the end of their final semester, students will take a written comprehensive examination which is designed to assess competency in all programmatic outcomes. Students must pass the comprehensive examination in order to graduate. Rationale In awarding the Master s degree in Clinical Psychology Marital & Family Therapy Specialization, The Chicago School certifies that the graduate has attained a high level of competency in assessment, case formulation, treatment planning, and implementation, as well as the knowledge and skills base that underlie these abilities. Preparation The student should have a foundational understanding of issues pertaining to human development and developmental assessment, family life cycle development, group dynamics, individual assessment, social and cultural foundations of behavior, maladaptive behavior and diagnosis, ethical practice and decision making, treatment planning, and substance abuse where appropriate. Review these areas as needed. Components of CCE Clinical Competency Evaluation (CCE) During the practicum seminar, students will conduct a formal case presentation and submit a 10-minute transcript and tape of an actual client session. In MM610 Practicum I a clinical case presentation outline will be completed and turned into the instructor along with the tape and transcript. For MM615 Practicum II the student will complete a Clinical Competency Evaluation (CCE) which consists of a Clinical Case Report, a tape and transcript as well as a formal oral presentation of the case to the class and instructor. The CCE results will determine if a student successfully passes practicum. If a student does not pass the first time, the student will be able to submit a second CCR, tape and transcript using a different interview. Students are advised to meet with their seminar instructor to review the first CCE and prepare to pass the CCE the next time. Failure to pass a second CCE means that the student has failed practicum and the student will need to complete practicum again.
11 Written Comprehensive Examination (WCE) All students are required to successfully complete the Written Comprehensive Exam. The information tested by the exam covers the program competencies. The comprehensive examination is generally administered twice a year and taken during the last year of enrollment in academic coursework. Students must be in good academic standing to be eligible to take the Written Comprehensive Examination. Additional information regarding registering, qualifying, format and dates of the exam can be obtained from the Department Chair of the program. Students who are unable to pass the Written Comprehensive Examination will be allowed to retake the exam a maximum of two additional times. The exam may be retaken during the next scheduled administration of the exam. Students will receive information from their faculty advisor concerning their performance on the examination. Assistance from faculty in constructing additional experiences and instruction aimed at enabling them to pass this program requirement can be offered. Any student who fails the Comprehensive Examination a third time is automatically dismissed from the program. Frequently Asked Questions about the MACP MFT program. 1.
