Continuing Education

LAMFT is the only approval agency in Louisiana for MFT CEUs. Applications for MFT CEUs must be requested and approved by LAMFT prior to an individual or agency stating that they have been approved for MFT CEUs in LA.

We are aware that some have already been presented. Our members may have attended these workshops and may still claim CEU hours for their attendance.  Backdating approvals should no longer be an issue.
