From the editors:

We’d love to hear from YOU.

In addition to sharing relevant member info, the goal of the MAMFT NEWS is to strengthen the MFT family system by fostering connection and community. It just makes sense for us to share our collective wisdom, energy and strengths. In other words, the more of us who contribute our knowledge, experience, and ideas, the richer our system becomes.

We enthusiastically encourage members and non-members alike to make submissions (clinical essays, reviews, letters to the editor, etc.) on any relevant or informative issue or in response to MAMFT NEWS content. All submissions will be edited for length, clarity, readability, grammar, spelling, biased language, and appropriateness to the mission of MAMFT NEWS. Opinions expressed in the MAMFT NEWS do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Editors or of MAMFT.

All articles and materials for publication should be submitted via the MAMFT website here.  Ads for the newsletter should be submitted here.  Questions or concerns may be addressed to the MAMFT News Editors at editors.mamftnewsletter@gmail.com.
