Qualified candidates must be able to supervise graduate students in practicum placements and possess the AAMFT Approved Clinical Supervisor designation or be an AAMFT Approved Supervisor candidate. Candidates should demonstrate the ability to teach a broad range of classes that support our current curriculum both online and on campus. Courses will include lifespan development, developing cultural competencies, and sexuality & therapy, as well as courses in the candidate’s area of expertise.
