« The primary purpose of this study was to explore the clinical practice patterns of all Canadian couple / marital and family therapists (C / MFTs) who are members of AAMFT (including student, affiliate, associate, clinical, and supervisor). The secondary purpose of this study was to compare Canadian and U.S. clinical practice pattern data for clinical members of AAMFT. » (p. 193)

« 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 C⁄MFTs 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. » (p. 193)
