U.S. News names marriage and family therapy one of '50 best career moves'

With more than 1.8 million people receiving treatment from marriage and family therapists, the field was picked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the 50 best career moves in 2011, and one with high promise for growth in the next decade.

The review cites an increasing acceptance of the field, which encourages people in need to seek out counseling, as a main indicator for growth. Employment in the field is expected to rise 14 percent from 2008 to 2018, according to the Labor Department.
