What's new @BYUMFT?
Leo Perez, a current second year in BYUs Marriage and Family Therapy MS program, received the very prestigious Minority Fellowship from the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. Each Fellow awarded the Fellowship has demonstrated a commitment to research and service for under served minority populations, and the continual advancement of the MFT field.
Dr. Jonathan Sandberg was awarded the Wesley P. Lloyd Award for distinction in graduate education. This award is given to a member of the graduate faculty who has distinguished herself or himself by exemplary performance in teaching, research/creative work, and citizenship. Jonathan serves as the current program director for BYU's Marriage and Family Therapy graduate programs and has mentored over 100 students during his 10 years here.
BYU MFT is dedicated to experiential learning opportunities. Last year, the national conference for AAMFT was held in Atlanta. Students and faculty enjoyed a day learning more about civil rights by exploring the Martin Luther King Jr home and other areas.
