In light of the recent executive order in the United States regarding immigration policy, AAMFT reiterates its global commitment to inclusivity, diversity, and a fundamental belief in the power of relationships upon which our passionate profession is built. Our profession has a longstanding and rich history of influence by immigrant marriage and family therapists and the ideas generated by MFTs throughout all areas of the world. With a membership that spans the globe, many of whom work with clients or have loved ones affected by these policies, we recognize that they may be impacted by the uncertainty around this rapidly evolving situation. Just as our members honor their commitments to help their clients navigate life’s challenges and triumphs, AAMFT is equally dedicated to holding true to the position that we assert the value and positive impact of stable, long-term, emotionally enriching relationships. We believe that society is better off when social groupings are created that allow for and support these qualities – not creates fragmentation and segmentation.
