Research in Counseling
Research coursework has long been a recognized component of counselor preparation programs. This groundbreaking book is designed to provide graduate students with an introduction to different types of counseling research (e.g., outcomes, processes, interventions), the variables and issues of relevance to know about in regard to research, and information about implementing research. Whenever possible, the text utilizes a real-world, practical approach showing the reader how to engage in various forms of counseling research inquiry. It is divided into three sections which cover the foundations of, approaches to, and issues and innovations in this realm of study. Other areas explored include philosophy of science, ethics, and the computer and counseling research. Written by experts in the field, the chapters offer a comprehensive, thorough analysis that can have implications for theory building, model building, and counseling practice.
