Abstract

In recent marriage and family therapy (MFT) literature, there has been increased discussion about the role of common factors in MFT training, specifically in advocating for a more prominent role (Karam et al., 2014; Sprenkle, Lebow & Davis, 2009). This article describes a study exploring the MFT master’s students’ experiences of learning and applying the common factors approach to their clinical practice. The sample consists of four current MFT master’s level students in a COMAFTE-accredited training program. Qualitative data were collected and analyzed using thematic analysis. The themes that emerged from our analysis demonstrate that MFT students found the common factors approach to positively inform their clinical training.
