Delta Kappa MFT Honor Society Now Taking Applications

Sep 13, 2018

Delta Kappa LogoOn Thursday November 8, 2018, the Upsilon Chapter of Delta Kappa International Marriage and Family Therapy Honor Society at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary will host its second induction ceremony as part of the seminary's 2018 Festival of Theology and Alum Reunion. Our Louisville Seminary marriage and family therapy students and alums are invited to join this outstanding professional organization.

Delta Kappa is the official honor society for the field of marriage and family therapy and serves to further and complement the work being done by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, the American Family Therapy Academy, and the International Family Therapy Association.

Delta Kappa has three primary aims:
  • Train emerging leaders in the field of marriage and family therapy to assume the mantle of leadership in the profession.
  • Provide a structure for developing scholarly forums that present cutting edge research and theory on marriage and family therapy to practitioners on an ongoing basis at the local, state, regional, national, and international level.
  • Recognize and promote the achievements of marriage and family therapy clinicians and scholars.

Marriage and family therapy professionals are invited into membership in Delta Kappa through three avenues.
  • Students in COAMFTE accredited marriage and family therapy programs who have completed at least 12 graduate credit hours with a grade point average of 3.75 or higher.
  • Graduates from such accredited marriage and family therapy programs with a concluding grade point average of at least 3.5 who have achieved Clinical Fellow status in AAMFT.
  • Senior marriage and family therapy professionals who demonstrate high dedication to scholarship and professional leadership through instruction, research, and/or student/new professional training.

The deadline to apply to be inducted with the second class of the Upsilon Chapter is Monday, October 22, 2018.
