Dr. Dale E. Bertram is a new faculty member of the Department of Marriage and Family Studies, beginning in the Fall 2012 semester. Dale’s approach to teaching and clinical supervision is to invite students to expand their abilities to transform theory into practice. He also enjoys helping students expand their comfort in working with difficult and challenging cases. Dale’s primary research interest is in the rhetorical aspects of family therapy dialogue, an area in which he has published several journal articles. He also is co-authoring a book related to Ericksonian supervision. Additionally, he is currently conducting research related to distance education in MFT. He wrote an article related to distance education in Family Therapy Magazine in 2011 and is currently collaborating with colleagues on other projects related to distance education.
Dale is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Kentucky and Alabama. He will pursue licensure as an LMFT in Texas, upon his arrival in Abilene. He is also a Clinical Fellow and Approved Supervisor in the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. Dale plans to establish a private practice in Abilene.
