Board of Marriage and Family Therapy
Also known as:
Minnesota Board of Marriage and Family Therapy
Function: The board adopts and enforces rules relating to licensure of marriage and family therapists and to regulation of their professional conduct.
Active dates:1987 -
"In 1987, the Minnesota Legislature provided for the licensure of marriage and family therapists, social workers, and the oversight of unlicensed mental health practice under the 'Office of Social Work and Mental Health.' After three years of operation the Legislature created a task force under the Commissioner of Health to investigate the viability of this structure. Based on the resulting report, the Legislature made social work and marriage and family therapy autonomous boards in 1991." (Recommendations on Merging the Minnesota Boards of Behavioral Health and Therapy and Marriage and Family Therapy, 2004)
Office of Social Work and Mental Health
Membership includes four who are licensed, practicing marriage and family therapists, each of whom shall for at least five years immediately preceding appointment, have been actively engaged as a marriage and family therapist; one member must be engaged in the professional teaching and research of marriage and family therapy; and two members representing the general public who have no direct affiliation with the practice of marriage and family therapy.
