Indiana Division


It is more important than ever to maintain your membership with IAMFT. When renewing with AAMFT, you will be given the option to "opt-in" for State Dues.  Be sure to opt in.  This is critical to maintaining victories legislatively in the State of Indiana.  AAMFT offered us 3 options as a state division: 
1) Dissolve
2) Become an Interest Group
3) Become an Independent Affiliate (Please note, Independent Affiliates no longer receive mandatory dues from state members.  AAMFT has made this an option. Beginning in 2018, members are no longe required to be members of IAMFT.

The IAMFT Board of Directors reviewed all options very carefully before decided to apply to become an Independent Affiliate.  The BOD believes this option is best for Indiana LMFTs because we retaiin a legal and independent status -- which is crucual to influencing state legislators.  



Clinical Membership:     Since Indiana has a law governing licensing as a marital and family therapist, AAMFT requires that applicants first be licensed, then obtain membership in the organization.  See the link for license information below.

      IAMFT provides at least conferences per year with trainings focused on theory, clinical application, and ethics. CE’s apply to members and other behavioral health professionals.
      Provide a lobbyist who is regularly at the statehouse monitoring legislation that could impact our license here in Indiana.  Advocacy is key to help us sustain both the quality and availability of mental health services for Hoosiers.  It also supports the continuance of high clinical and ethical standards for the profession.
      One of the greatest benefits is the opportunity to network with other MFTs for support and accountability.
      Numerous leadership opportunities are available to serve on the Board as a Region Representative, Member at Large, Officer or Committee.
