Covering a broad range of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods designs, as well as action research and program evaluation, the text presents the most common types of research used in the field of counseling. From reviews of the text: "The content is strong and clearly explained. . . . This is the best [counseling research text] I have seen." -Monica Osburn, UNC-Pembroke and Webster "The majority of my students report it is easy to follow and understand, even those with limited research knowledge. . . . So often I find counseling students viewing research methods courses as courses they must just 'get through' and not ones that will help them in their future careers. This book . . . does help students understand how this knowledge can benefit them in their future practice. -Ryan Melton, Portland State University "The book is very clear and concise, and it is an easy text for the students to understand. The many examples used throughout the text and sample paper are great resources for the students. . . . It is relevant to counseling students, it has information required by CACREP, and it is a comprehensive research textbook that is easy for students to follow. The examples given are superb . . . ." -Lakitta D.
