Abstract

To date, no studies have described the attitudes and research practices of marriage and family therapists (MFTs). A questionnaire was mailed to a random sample of 100 clinical members of the American Association for Marital and Family Therapy in each of 3 geographically diverse states. The questionnaire assessed clinicians' willingness to participate in research projects and their use of research in clinical practice. These data provide a profile of research practices of MFTs. Results indicated a moderate level of research involvement among practitioners. The hypothesis that training in research methods would predict research involvement was only partially supported.
