BYU MFT Mission Statement

In harmony with Brigham Young University’s sponsoring organization, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the mission and aims of Brigham Young University, the Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) programs focus on the “balanced development” of all associated with MFT training to be a healing influence in a world struggling to create safe and meaningful relationships. This development is carried out in an environment of compassion, inclusion, and diversity. Both programs educate MFTs in a relational perspective on the practice and science of healing to improve the health and well-being of individuals, couples, and families. Finally, we strive to be an international leader in process research that informs how change occurs and extend our healing influence beyond our programs.
