American Family Therapy Academy (AFTA)
Who We Are
AFTA is a community of professionals that has provided a gathering place for the best and brightest minds in family therapy and allied fields for nearly four decades. It is a multi-disciplinary and diverse organization comprised of academics, researchers, educators, students, and mental health professionals that has served as incubator for some of the most compelling insights and transformative ideas about the family unit and the critical role it plays in creating healthy communities.
Since 1978, members of AFTA have helped tens of thousands of families, couples, and individuals in crisis. Theories about family and approaches to mental health championed by AFTA are taught in every major institution of higher learning. The work of the members of AFTA has influenced an entire generation of mental health theorists, researchers, and practitioners.
