Abstract

Investigated the nature and scope of course work and practica training available within all 108 American Psychological Association-approved clinical and counseling psychology programs and 125 departments of counselor education granting the doctorate. Findings indicate that at least two-thirds of all faculty and students believe that there is departmental support for marriage and family therapy (MFT) training. 66% of clinical and counseling psychology departments and 33% of counselor education departments were offering some MFT course work. Few new MFT faculty additions were being planned or anticipated, and in most departments offering MFT, few new course offerings were being considered. Thus, there was a discrepancy between the strong support generated for MFT training and the actual courses available to students. Strategies are suggested for increasing MFT training in these settings. (11 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
