Marriage and family therapists must receive a minimum of 200 supervision hours to complete licensure requirements. The state of Massachusetts defines a supervisor for marriage and family therapists in one of two ways:

1) An AAMFT-approved supervisor.

2) An LMFT, LMHC, LICSW, psychologist, or psychiatrist, all of whom hold a minimum of a master's degree in marriage and family therapy, social work, mental health counseling, or an equivalent field. This supervisor must have supervised two therapists providing marriage and family therapy for two years or more. This supervisor must also hold a teaching or supervisory position at an agency or institute that trains family therapists and provides services to individuals, couples, and families.

LMHCs and social workers have separate supervision requirements.
