Mission: The Pre-Clinical committee exists to promote and enhance the professional identity of Pre-Clinical members in Minnesota. We do this by providing opportunities for networking, mentoring, learning, sharing, supporting, resources, and connection.

Vision: A clear identity and community for post-grad, pre-LMFT MAMFT members

What is Pre-Clinical? After you have graduated from an MFT program and are no longer a student, you enter the stage of being “pre-clinical.” It is for the duration of the time when you are working toward licensure as an LMFT. Committee members range from recent graduates, to members preparing for the national (written) exam, all the way to members preparing to take the state (oral) exam to be come an LMFT. After you become an LMFT, you transition to being a Clinical member.

What is an MAMFT member?:
MAMFT is the state association for Marriage and Family Therapy. It is your “professional home.” MAMFT represents the interests of MFTs in Minnesota as well as in the United States. Your membership provides you with a community of peers and mentors in the field. Through conferences, networking events, trainings, and more, you have the opportunity to meet other individuals who are passionate about the field of Marriage and Family Therapy.

What happens at a Pre-Clinical Committee Meeting?
We typically meet monthly on a weeknight around 6pm at a restaurant in the Twin Cities. Members of the committee suggest new places and we get to try tasty food!

Our meetings are pretty casual and include:

  • supporting one another
  • brainstorming and planning events relevant to Pre-Clinical members
  • collaborating on our professional endeavors / practices
  • having fun
  • eating good food
  • commiserating through struggles
  • meeting new Pre-Clinical folks

Best of all, no commitment is required. Come for one meeting, all meetings, or somewhere in between. We’d love to have you join us!
