Counseling Research: A Practitioner-Scholar Approach (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Richard S. Balkin, David M. Kleist
This widely adopted and accessible introductory text for counselors-in-training and emerging researchers provides a foundational understanding of the primary research methods used in counseling and how these concepts can be applied to research design. Writing in a clear and conversational tone, the authors emphasize the importance of ethics and multicultural issues in informing research, demonstrate a professional counselor identity within the framework of research, and outline specific evidence-based and empirically supported findings for counseling practice.
This book contains four parts that explain the practitioner-scholar model and the research process, quantitative and qualitative research methodology and design, and research measurement and program evaluation. Key features include a discussion of the fundamentals of statistics, practical research design illustrations in each chapter, guidelines for the development of an initial study, and suggested activities that synthesize and apply chapter content.
New to this edition is a glossary to assist readers with the technical terms discussed in the text and a test manual and PowerPoints for instructors’ use, which are available by request from the American Counseling Association.
