Converse’s Master of Marriage and Family Therapy (MMFT) program recently hired its first Doctoral Intern, Deneisha Scott-Poe. A Doctoral Candidate from Virginia Tech, Scott-Poe will serve as visiting core faculty for the 2021-2022 academic year. Her research centers around African American adult daughters who provide care to a parent with Alzheimer’s disease through the lens of Intersectionality.
The new internship program will provide Doctoral Candidates across the nation with hands-on, practical experience as they receive supervised training on how to work with and supervise in a COAMFTE Accredited MFT program.
Converse’s MMFT program has two COAMFTE-accredited locations in Upstate South Carolina and is the only COAMFTE-accredited program in South Carolina. With classes offered at Converse’s Spartanburg campus or at the University Center Greenville, the MMFT program provides students with convenient and affordable training dedicated to producing clinically-skilled and culturally competent systemic marriage and family therapists. Its unique partnership with local practice, EMERGE Family Therapy and Teaching Clinic, also prepares students with clinical practicum experience.
