The MFP would like to invite the submission of workshop/presentation proposal materials for consideration at its upcoming 2015 Winter Training Institute (WTI) (February 4-7, 2015). All Presenter Information Forms should be submitted no later than November 2, 2014.

MFP WTI Overview

MFP Winter Training Institutes feature interactive seminars and advanced workshops with distinguished scholars and clinicians in the behavioral health field of marriage and family therapy. MFP Fellows gain an opportunity to learn from, and interact with, presenters in the areas of cultural sensitive interventions with ethnic minority populations, as well as, the integration of advanced quantitative research modalities.

The Minority Fellowship Program is a national workforce development program that seeks to- through collaboration with federal agencies like the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and leading behavioral health professional associations like AAMFT- increase the number of culturally competent behavioral health practitioners who provide substance abuse and other mental health services to underserved minority populations.

Presentation Criteria

Presentations materials for the WTI will be reviewed for the following:
  • Quality
  • Congruency with SAMHSA Initiatives
  • Congruency with MFP Training Plan
  • Feasibility of proposed workshop/presentation within WTI format
  • Relevance to MFT and wider behavioral health field
Presentations should clearly speak to the presenation criteria as indicated above with clearly outlined congruency with SAMHSA Strategic Initiatives, the mission of the AAMFT Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) and format of the MFP Winter Training Institute (WTI). The MFP would encourage those with expertise in areas related to LGBTQ issues or Asian American issues to apply. Please note that only one form should be submitted per presenter.

Final selections will be made by November 13, 2014- notifications will be issued on or by that date.
