Research practices of marriage and family therapists
practice of marriage, family therapists, therapeutic practice
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.
