Noontime Forums

Each year, the Master of Science in Family Therapy (MSFT) program plays host to a series of lectures focusing on a particular topic or variety of topics to provide a brief and yet informative presentation relevant to the mental-health field. In addition to gaining useful information on clinical application, clinicians can earn continuing-education credit by attending (1 forum = 1 hour of CEU). Mental-health professionals and students are invited to bring a sack lunch and join us from noon to 1 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month in the Marriage and Family Therapy facility.
