Fellow in Thanatology (FT®) is an advanced
professional certification for thanatology professionals. It recognizes
practitioners and educators in the discipline of death, dying, and
bereavement who have met specified knowledge requirements measured
through a standardized testing process and who demonstrate advanced
levels of competency in teaching, research and/or clinical practice
through a professional portfolio.
An Advanced Certification Task Force of experts from the ADEC membership with advice from members of associated organizations developed the FT® credential and the criteria for the professional portfolio.
* Individuals who have not earned the CT®
certification may apply for Fellow in Thanatology but are required to
successfully pass the CT® exam before they will be
awarded the FT® certification.
