Marriage and family therapy is incredibly rewarding for those who want to help families through their most difficult times. Marriage and family therapists counsel patients on how to cope with any number of problems, ranging from communication to abuse and mental illness.
With the uncertainty of a troubled economy taking its toll on families, it is no surprise that demand for marriage and family counseling is on the rise. The Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates a 14% growth in the field by 2018. This is a faster than average growth for industries in the U.S. and means more opportunities for career growth for marriage and family therapists.
