What is Delta Kappa?

One of the marks of a profession's development is the creation of institutionalized structures and customs that recognize and further the development of the field.  Delta Kappa, the International Marriage and Family Therapy Honor Society, is such an institution for the profession of marriage and family therapy.  Delta Kappa, as the official honor society for the field of MFT, serves to further and complement the fine work being done by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, the American Family Therapy Academy, and the International Family Therapy Association.  Delta Kappa recognizes the achievements of current students as well as practitioners already in the field who have achieved distinction and continue to make significant contributions to the field.

Delta Kappa, The International Marriage and Family Therapy Honor Society, has three primary aims. The first aim is to train emerging leaders in the field of marriage and family therapy to assume the mantle of leadership in the profession. The second aim is to provide a structure for developing scholarly forums that present cutting edge research and theory on marriage and family therapy to practitioners on an ongoing basis at the local, state, regional, national, and international level. The third aim is to recognize and promote the achievements of marriage and family therapy clinicians and scholars.
