Welcome to the Illinois Affiliation of Marriage and Family Therapists

Annual Conference to be virtual. In the interest of the safety of our presenters and conference attendees, the IAMFT Board of Directors has decided to change our in-person Annual Conference, scheduled for October 14-16 in Naperville, to a virtual conference this fall. With the rising rate of COVID infections and the direction from the CDC that indoors events be masked even for vaccinated individuals, this change is in the best interest of our membership. The Annual Conference will be held virtually, with a combination of live-streaming event on November 13 and pre-recorded workshops that will be available for viewing from November 13 to December 31.

On July 22, 2021, HB 3308, the Telehealth Parity Law, was officially signed into law by Governor Pritzger. We are grateful to Governor Pritzger, the sponsors and co-sponsors of this bill and all organizations who joined IAMFT in advocating for this bill. As Governor Pritzger pointed out in his comments, Illinois becomes one of the first states to make telehealth a permanent fixture in healthcare and, in particular, the mental health landscape.
A specific IAMFT thank you goes out to all IAMFT members who contacted your legislators and let them know how important telehealth was to your clients in terms of expanding access to mental health care, not just during the COVID 19 pandemic but permanently. Thank you to each of you who advocated for your field, your clients and who worked to change the face of mental health care in Illinois.

As an association of LMFTs, ALMFTs and other mental health professionals, our goal is to educate, advocate and affiliate together in order to better serve the individuals, couples and families of Illinois. Through our conference, training and networking opportunities, we support those providing systemic therapy to Illinois families.

CEU Change for LMFTs

Due to the continued COVID 19 pandemic, the IDFPR has temporarily lifted the 50% in-person requirement for CEUs for LMFTs. During the Governor's Emergency Order, all CEUs can be received online. The specific rule reads as follows:

CE hours may be earned through completion of a distance learning course (e.g., pre- recorded online course/program, live online course/program, by mail, computer, etc.) that is offered by an approved sponsor who meets the requirements set forth in subsection (c). Each course shall include an examination.
