With enlightening examples and illustrations drawn from counseling literature, RESEARCH DESIGN IN COUNSELING fully addresses the common problems that confront counseling researchers. Heppner, Kivlighan, and Wampold's evenhanded approach provides students with an understanding of the various types of research, including single-subject and survey research. Writing more than just a how-to book, the authors present a compelling rationale for the necessity of counselors conducting research - and argue for a greater integration of science and practice domains in order for work in each to be more effective.
