Prior research has shown that psychology-trained practitioners use homework assignments, but no prior research has sought to survey the clinical practice of other mental health professionals. Three hundred and thirty-three mental health professionals from counselling, medical, nursing, psychology, and social work training backgrounds were surveyed regarding their use of homework assignments in psychotherapy. The vast majority ofthe sample (83%) reported the use of homework assignments, and those practising cognitive behavioural therapy indicated a greater frequency and degree of specificity in assigning homework. However, it was noteworthy that all theoretical and professional groups in the present study reported some use of homework assignments.
