The Saskatchewan Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (SKAMFT) is a division of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), an international professional association established in 1942.  We also belong to the Registry for Marriage & Family Therapists in Canada.

Do you know that Registered Marriage & Family Therapists are mental health and relationship professionals?

  • Registered Marriage and Family Therapists (RMFTs)  are commonly known as Family Therapists.
  • RMFTs are uniquely qualified Relationship Professionals who help people see their  situations from a new perspective that supports their strengths and invites change.
  • RMFTs are highly trained Mental Health Professionals who have completed over 1000 hours of therapy with individuals, families, couples and groups while supervised by an RMFT Approved Supervisor.
  • RMFTs  have acquired rigorous graduate level training in couple and family therapy.
  • RMFTs help people explore their relationships with themselves, and with spouses, partners, fathers, mothers, daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, step-parents, grandparents, friends, peers, colleagues, neighbours and others.
  • RMFTs honour diversity in ability, age, culture, ethnicity, gender, race, sexual orientation, spirituality and socioeconomic status.
  • RMFT research shows that couple and family therapy is a preferred and effective treatment for depression, severe mental illness, substance abuse, couple problems and parenting concerns.
