Recognizing that the profession of counseling has entered the age of accountability, Erford worked with several colleagues in the field to develop Research and Evaluation in Counseling. As counselor-educators and counselors themselves, the author team knows that the more informed counselors are about research and evaluation procedures, the more effective and efficient their treatment of clients and students can be. Organized into four topical sections, this text addresses the curricular assessment requirements of the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), providing the latest information on research, statistics, and evaluation procedures.
