Cengage Learning, Feb 13, 2007 - Education - 672 pages
With enlightening examples and illustrations drawn from counseling literature, RESEARCH DESIGN IN COUNSELING fully addresses the common problems that confront counseling researchers. Heppner, Wampold, and Kivlighan's evenhanded approach provides students with an understanding of the various types of research, including both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Writing more than just a how-to book, the authors present a compelling rationale for the necessity of counselors conducting research-and argue for greater integration of science and practice domains in order for work in each to be more effective.

I'm really confused about how others could possibly have thought this book was useless. It is clear, easy to read, and explains various research designs used in counseling psychology. Furthermore, the book discuses their pros and cons and under what circumstances the various designs are best utilized. If you are engaging in research in counseling psychology or are learning how do to his type of research, or if you are a true believer in the scientist-practitioner model, this book is a must-have.
