Family psychotherapy--Study and teaching (Continuing education)
Continuing professional education has been defined as those formal activities associated with learning in which learners become more competent to perform their present and future jobs. This study examines the evaluation of continuing professional education in the field of family therapy. Several key participant and presenter variables were studied to determine their effect on conference or workshop satisfaction ratings. The data show that age and AAMFT membership of conference participants are significantly related to overall conference satisfaction ratings. Also the data show that the presenter's ratings of their own presentation is significantly related to the participant ratings for that presentation. These preliminary findings suggest that the evaluation of continuing professional education in family therapy is a complex multi-dimensional phenomenon. Suggestions for future research are discussed.
