Becoming a Master CFDT
Master CFDTs have proven mastery of the knowledge, technical, and professional aspects of cognitive function development therapy, have made significant and substantive contributions to the CFDI Therapeutic Framework and its clinical applicability with demonstrated positive, reproducible results, and exemplify a commitment to cognitive function development as an efficacious therapeutic modality, advancing the practical and efficacious treatment of mental health conditions, and the CFDI and its core value and purpose.
After sponsoring MCFDT approval, individuals meeting the prerequisites for MCFDT credentialing may request access to the online coursework: Designing your MCFDT Program (estimated 10 hours).
In conjunction with the sponsoring MCFDT and employing organization, the individual must design and receive CFDI approval for an MCFDT program and dissertation (indeterminate hours).
Complete the MCFDT program and successfully defend the dissertation before a Master’s review panel. Upon successful completion of the MCFDT program and review of the dissertation, the individual will be granted MCFDT certification.
The MCFDT credential may be renewed annually with documentation of the following:
• Attestation to the maintenance of clinical standards (per organization of practice)
• Maintenance of good standing with the CFDI
