The Art and Science of Clinical Practice

Developing greater self-awareness; appreciating and embracing diversity; and promoting ethical behavior, professionalism, and professional identity.


The mission of the Couple and Family Therapy Program at UNLV is to provide quality training in the theory and practice of marriage and family therapy. We are committed to helping students become competent couple, marriage, and family therapy professionals through developing greater self-awareness, embracing diversity, and learning the importance of becoming critical consumers of research. We model ethical and professional behavior, and develop skilled practitioners who take an active role in leading and serving their communities.
