Recognizing the gravity of Canada’s actions with First Nations/Indigenous cultures, families, and children, both past and present, all RMFT applicants, including AAMFT Clinical Fellows and LMFTs requesting grandparenting into RMFT membership, are expected to have an awareness of this history and the current issues as well as the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.  Applicants are required to submit a 6 – 8 page, double spaced Reflection Paper, (i.e. personal rather than academic in focus) in which they outline and reflect on:

  • the impact of the historical and current issues and findings of the TRC on their own history and beliefs; 
  • the impact of the same on their own professional identity; 
  • how the historical and current issues and findings of the TRC can be understood through a systemic lens
  • the impact of the same on their systemic practice and how it can be acknowledged and addressed in therapy.
  • Applicants may want to reference the TRC findings, The Indian Act, current Indigenous authors and their works, and cultural experiences and teachings.

If you identify as Indigenous, we ask that you complete a reflection paper regarding how your own experience and learning informs your therapeutic practice and professional identity, particularly with a systemic lens. 

Resources for TRC paper: You can find resources on the ‘membership explained’ webpage under the ‘membership tab’
