Understanding Research in Counselling
November 2013 | 192 pages | Learning Matters
Many counselling courses have a strong research element built into the modules and students are expected to gain a thorough understanding of research issues early on in their studies. This accessible and practical textbook will demystify research and make it relevant to counselling practice. There are sections on linking clinical practice to research, developing 'curiosity' and engaging with the data. The book uses clinical practice as a basis for understanding research, and makes connections between the activity of therapy and the research process.

Switching on Your Curiosity: Developing Research Ideas
