The Intensive eStudy Program combines all of the materials found in the Home Study Program (and more!) though in a digitized format and adds the 11 hours of FSI’s Virtual Workshop’s didactic instruction from an actual 3-day FSI Workshop, presented by FSI founder, Rob Guise, with an embedded PowerPoint. The eStudy Workbook breaks the Study Guide down to more manageable bites, links practice questions with MFT Models, Knowledge and Practice Domains in a learning rather testing mode which gives you immediate feedback on right/wrong answers for those that like to study with practice questions; the eStudy Workbook also contains many other resources (videos, links, readings) not found in any other of our study materials.
This Intensive eStudy Program provides you with the Study Guide, Virtual Workshop Series, Virtual Workshop PowerPoint, MFT Model Audio Review , unlimited access to 100 and full-size 200 question practice exams, MFT Model Worksheets, MFT Models Comparison Chart and MFT Concept Glossary. We recommend you subscribe to this program 2-3 months prior to your testing date. The MFT Models Audio Review walks you through the MFT Models Worksheets and the Comparison Chart helps you compare similarities/differences between the primary 18 models of MFT.
FSI recommends that you begin by starting with the Virtual Workshop Series (via Streaming Video), watching the full 11 hours of didactic teaching with embedded PowerPoint and then begin reading the Study Guide. The Virtual Workshop presents various ideologic, philosphical and historical frameworks enabling you to hold the full MFT field in your head and helping you to further develop your capacity to quickly deconstruct a model to its core concepts; a skill necessary to successfully pass this exam.
Bouncing back and forth between the Study Guide, the Virtual Workshop will get you through the 1st 3rd of the Study Guide (which you actually do need to read to pass this exam!) Then begin working with our practice exams which will give you a sense of your strengths and weaknesses and what you need to do to better prepare for the actual test. Remember to access your Personalize Progress Report to point you back content areas that need remediation in the eStudy Workbook!
You can also resubscribe to the Intensive eStudy Program when your subscription ends and receive a 50% discount.

Family Solutions’ MFT Model Audio Review is now offered as a 90 day streaming audio subscription via FSI’s eStudy Program and as part of the HomeStudy Program and Intensive HomeStudy Track or as a standalone eStudy course. Once purchased, your access is immediate.
The MFT Model Audio Review focuses on the primary MFT models including: Bowen, Contextual, Object Relations, MRI, Haley Strategic, Milan Systemic, Structural, Solution Focused, Narrative, Collaborative Language, Feminist, Psychoeducational, Behavioral, CBT, Network and Integrative.
Each of the MFT Models is discussed across the following frameworks: Core Concepts, Theory of Change and Dysfunction, Stages of Treatment, Termination, Therapist Stance and Techniques.
Discussion is between FSI founders: Rob Guise, Michael Vickers and Jackie Gagliardi and is approximately 2 1/2 hours long.
Known across the the field of Marriage and Family Therapy as the “Big Green Book”, the 6th Edition of Family Solutions’ Study Guide is the definitive study guide to prepare for the AMFTRB National Licensing Exam for MFTs. The FSI Study Guide is a 600+ page hardbound book which concisely organizes the information most likely to be tested by the AMFTRB. The Study Guide 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.
Welcome to Family Solutions’ Personalized Coaching
FSI’s Personalized Study Coaching is currently offered on an individual basis. These sessions take place online in a real time coaching session with FSI founder, Rob Guise, using FSI’s internal web conferencing app, Skype or Zoom. These individual coaching sessions focus on fine tuning your personal preparation status and unique strengths and weaknesses in exam taking skills and helping you shift your systemic perspective just enough to pass this very linear examination.
What we can do to help you:
We usually divide the coaching process into two main parts equivalent to our workshop design.
2) Test-taking skills.
For content, specific questions or “blind” spots about the models and model-comparisons are often very valuable to discuss, as well as important special topics. Over the years, FSI has developed brief concept statements about each model, that can serve to trigger memory of the major concepts of each, and we can go through those as well.
For skills, our goal is to help you develop a disciplined approach to every exam question so you know exactly what you’re being asked (deconstructing the question) and also know exactly what each alternative answer is saying (constructing an answer). Misunderstanding questions or getting approximate but not specific ideas about what each question is asking, is a common cause of losing points for people who know the content.
We also work with testing anxiety, time management and self care prior to and during the exam.
Individual coaching sessions are planned for 50 minutes each, although a few minutes more if needed is always fine. Individual sessions do not require any minimum commitment, and can be set up flexibly to accommodate your ongoing concerns as you prepare for the exam.
Scheduling Individual Sessions:
Now that you have purchased a Personalized Study Coach session, contact Rob Guise at [email protected] to initiate sessions. The schedule of meetings can be arranged flexibly to respond to your concerns as your preparation progresses.
Tell us about yourself and where you are in your preparation process.
When you get in touch with Rob Guise, would you include some background info about yourself as it will be helpful in structuring your session :
When are you taking the exam?
Have you taken it previously?
What preparation materials are you using and what have you done to prepare thus far?
What do you feel your strengths and weaknesses are?
Do you have a specific agenda of items you want help with?
