The 6th Edition of the FSI MFT Study Guide was updated to specifically cover the current AMFTRB Exam slated for each of the 12 testing windows in 2019 and beyond; the New  6th Edition contains the correct and accurate information about each of the Knowledge Domains that may appear on the Marriage & Family Therapy Licensing Exam. FSI's "Knowledge Domain-to-Chapter Map" shows where in the Study Guide information can be found about each domain.  As FSI hears of any changes to the exam, even after you have purchased the Home Study Program or Intensive Track, we will make the new content available to you via our eStudy site at a discounted price through our eStudy Program if you have purchased either the Home Study Program, eStudy Program or Intensive Track previously. As HIPAA has begun to appear more regularly on the exam, FSI has added an easy to understand HIPAA section in this new 6th Edition, as well as a chapter on Crisis Management and the DSM-5. Used by many COAMFTE Accredited MFT programs, the Study Guide serves as both a foundations and advanced theories text that will also successfully help you pass the AMFTRB National exam upon graduation.

The Study Guide is a 600+ page hardbound book which concisely organizes the information most likely to be tested by the AMFTRB. The book presents this large body of knowledge in both a summary and more detailed form, emphasizing the most important concepts needed for the exam, in a very "user friendly" format. It is designed with both recent graduates and the older, very experienced clinicians in mind. Increasingly, COAMFTE Accredited MFT Programs are using the FSI Study Guide in their Foundation Courses to meet the new national exam pass percentage requirements for maintaining accreditation.  The Study Guide covers:
  - Introductory summaries of each of the models of family therapy, plus key concepts and primary theorists written in the language and jargon of the particular theory being presented. 
  - Sample exam questions, designed to help you become familiar with the style of the exam included to point out your strengths and weaknesses.
  - A full MFT concept glossary and subject index that allows for quick comprehension of unfamiliar concepts and terms.
  - Chapter by chapter references to recommended readings, designed to help select and organize additional reading beyond the Study Guide.
  - Specific attention to each of the 74 Knowledge Domains and 6 Practice Domains, insuring that you are paying attention to each topic area likely to be found on the actual test.
  - A chapter dedicated to the AAMFT Code of Ethics and all relevant legal issues as well as a chapter on MFT Outcome Research, Crisis Management and the DSM-5.
