Clinical Practice Patterns of Canadian Couple/Marital/Family Therapists
Beaton, John; Dienhart, Anna; Schmidt, Jonathan; Turner, Jean
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v35 n2 p193-203 Apr 2009
This clinical practice pattern survey had two unique aspects. It was a national survey of American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) members in Canada that included all AAMFT membership categories, including student, affiliate, associate, clinical, and supervisor. It compared practice pattern data for clinical members from Canada and the United States. The results also showed that students, affiliates, and associates are very interested in identifying who they are as CMFTs and that they are receiving various types of training. Clinical members in both Canada and the United States are fairly similar in terms of demographics and therapy practice, except when it comes to the models they identify as most influential. Future client satisfaction and outcome research is needed to determine how clients are specifically benefiting from therapy. (Contains 4 tables.)
