For this assignment, think about a potential study you might want to conduct in which you would need to collect numerical data. You can use the research topic and problem you developed earlier, but make sure to modify your research questions to fit a quantitative method for this assignment. In addition, while selecting the topic for the research project please consider the contribution to the field of MFT. Copy and paste the instructions below into your document and provide succinct responses below each:
