Since the new Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA Publication Manual, Manual, 2020) can be confusing and sometimes overwhelming for students enrolled in and faculty teaching couple and family classes, this article focuses on a pedagogical framework for assisting students in understanding the new Manual. Specifically, this article focuses on practical ways for faculty to help graduate students, especially doctoral-level students, understand how to successfully implement the content of the manual in their writings. Emphasis is placed on experiential learning techniques, and a 50-item exercise is provided to assess the student’s understanding of the many changes in the 2020 edition of the Manual.
