Description: This edited book on advanced couple and family therapy research methods meets a significant need among graduate students and researchers. Specifically, it addresses methodological issues that are unique to couple and family therapy research, which is distinctive to research with individual clients and contains characteristics that must be appropriately addressed in order to produce valid results (e.g. controlling for the effects of interactions between and among family members, ethical issues, recruiting and retaining the study sample throughout the study, and analyzing data). Each chapter describes how their respective methodological or analysis strategy enhances the ability to research how couples and families change during the course of therapy, and will discuss principles of internal, construct, external, and conclusion validity. The state-of-the-art methods in this book provide couple and family therapy researchers with the knowledge and skills necessary to produce quality research that is publishable in top journals, as well as write fundable grant proposals. The chapters on methodology are provided with sample data sets so the researcher or student can gain experience with the method and manipulate the elements to ascertain varied effects. Lastly, the overall integrated nature of the chapters helps readers learn how to think about research through the lens of validity and change.
