According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are roughly 42,900 marriage and family therapists in America. Since 1970, the number of LMFTs have increased 50 times over. An estimated 1.8 million people are attending marriage and family therapy at any given time. 

Most states require family therapists to obtain continuing education units (CEUs) in order to renew their license. Some states require a portion of CEUs to be about family therapy or domestic violence. Other professionals, such as child psychologists or school counselors, can also benefit from continuing education on family therapy.

GoodTherapy offers many continuing education credits for family therapy. CEUs on family therapy cover a variety of topics, from blended family issues to parenting strategies. Other courses focus on how family therapy can treat certain mental health issues, such as addiction or trauma. Continuing education can help mental health providers sharpen their skills and expand their professional toolboxes.
