The purpose of this blog is to provide a forum to educate, to exchange information and to create a community for Fairfield University MFT students, perspective students, alumni and the community at large . Our hope is that something that is read on this blog will inspire some to join our ranks as Marriage and Family Therapists, will challenge others to consider alternate perspectives on issues of mental health; but most importantly will serve as a positive and informative resource to better strengthen our families and our communities.
