Title: The role of race/ethnicity in clinical judgment in couples and family therapy
Author: Powell, Felicia Y. R.
Abstract: This research examined how training and experience , family roles , gender and ethnicity affect ratings of family and individual functioning . Untrained undergraduates and American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT ) members’ ratings of case histories that described various ethnic families were compared as a measure of client ethnicity effects . Participant perceptions of case vignettes were compared to determine the relative influence of family race on the clinical judgment of family and individual family member functioning . Three hundred fifty five (126 untrained , 229 experienced ) adults from a large Southwestern University and American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy participated in the research . Participants were randomly assigned to the three interview conditions : (a ) Caucasian family , (b ) Asian family , and (c ) Hispanic family . After reading the case vignettes , participants completed parent and family assessment forms for each of the three family vignettes .
