The Futures Conference

The Futures Conference is an event designed for MFT students and recent graduates that covers important information about being an MFT beyond theory and clinical work. You'll learn from experienced MFTs and counselors about what it takes to successfully begin your professional career.

Workshops at this daylong event include Navigating the Road to Licensure, Marketing Myself and My Practice, Getting the Most out of Supervision, Is a PhD for Me, and a panel of recent MFT graduates sharing their stories and what they learned about life after graduation.

This year's Futures Conference is being held November 3 at Adler University, 17 N. Dearborn St., Chicago from 9:30am-4:30pm.  A box lunch will be included.
