The mental health profession has long suffered identity problems in the eyes of their consumers. In an attempt to gauge the general public’s perception of marriage and family therapy, the author created a survey that was reviewed by an expert judge panel using surveymonkey.com. The survey was posted on classified sites and emailed to students advertising an incentive for participation. A total of 499 participated by taking the survey. Their responses were then analyzed using independent sample t-tests. This book reviews and discusses these results as well as reviews the current literature concerning public perception.
