Counseling students often refer to this best-selling book as the text that saved their lives-it makes the often-challenging topic of research exceptionally clear and approachable, while showing how it applies to the counseling profession. Used by over 100 counselor education graduate programs, Counseling Research: Quantitative, Qualitative, and Mixed Methods is written in a voice that students understand and presents the material in a manner that allows developmental growth with regard to comprehending counseling research. Recognizing that most counselors are consumers of research and that they have to understand how to integrate research findings into their practice, the authors cover all of the requisite concepts identified by CACREP, but also show how to apply those concepts to practice. The Second Edition is aligned with national standards in counseling and gives counseling students the opportunity to learn research design, methodology, and analysis through a counseling-specific framework, rather than simply in the context of education. Through counseling-specific examples students see how to apply their learning to other aspects of their training, and professors get a more straightforward means of making research understandable and relevant. Counseling Research also focuses not only on how to produce valid research, but also on how to competently read, analyze, and utilize others' research. In addition to the requisite research materials, this new edition includes chapters on ethics in counseling research, a practical guide to data analysis, and relevant examples of multicultural issues in research infused throughout the text. New chapters on action research and qualitative case study are also included in this Second Edition.Über den Autor:
