This is an engaging, useful and readable introduction to undertaking research in counselling and psychotherapy...The constant yet subtle introduction of key concepts throughout the text make this a great introduction for those wishing to understand more about why research is important in this field.
'The authors of this very personal book seem to have really understood student anxieties about embarking on research. The whole project of getting to grips with research methods is brought alive through examples from the authors' own teaching of research methods. One of the inspired pedagogical methods is the use of debate to get students to articulate their approach and back this up from role played perspectives like that of a service commissioner.
This was an easy to understand text, especially for students undertaking research for the first time. I particularly liked the suggested activities in the Activity Box sections; I will definitely be incorporating some of these into my class sessions.
Recommended highly to our students on masters course - clear and accessible!
An accessible text for students learning about research, the relevance of it for counselling and psychotherapy or about to undertake their first research study.
I particularly like the exercises and the reflections of students.
This is an excellent resource for any student contemplating a research project within the field of counselling and psychotherapy. It is a very reader friendly resource and serves to de-mystify some of the methodological jargon that students encounter when embarking upon a research project for the first time. Highly recommended!
helpful supportive text in enabling trainees to understand the role and purpose of research in counselling and psychotherapy. Nicely written and easy to read - engaging text
A good basic text in a much needed area
Did not fit the parameters for this course.
This book offers a very clear overview of relevant issues associated with counselling research. This book would be useful to the novice counselling researcher and has useful tasks throughout the book which help the reader to develop an understanding of their own skills and preferences when undertaking a research project.
User friendly and readable. A great resource.
I will be recommending this is an accessible introductory text for new master's students starting their research projects
