Using Counseling Research: Quantitative, Qualitative, and Mixed Methods, counseling students are given the opportunity to learn research design, methodology, and analysis through a counseling-specific framework. While other comparable survey books on education-related research and statistics do not contain many specific examples and applications of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods from the counseling profession, this texts gives counseling students the opportunity to learn research methods within their own unique discipline.
By using counseling-specific examples, students will be more able to apply their learning to other aspects of their training and professors will have a more straightforward means of making research understandable and relevant to the master’s level counseling student. Counseling Research also focuses not only on how to produce valid research, but also on how to competently read, analyze, and utilize others’ research. In addition to the requisite research materials, the textbook includes chapters on ethics in counseling research, multicultural issues in counseling research, and a practical guide to SPSS.

Title: Counseling Research( Quantitative Qualitative and Mixed Methods) <>Binding: Hardcover <>Author: CarlJ.Sheperis <>Publisher: PearsonEducationReview:
"From reviews of the text: " The content is strong and clearly explained. . . . This is the best [counseling research text] I have seen. Monica Osburn, UNC-Pembroke and Webster The writing style is one of the best features of this text. The authors do a phenomenal job at describing research methods at a level that will appeal to counselling students. Angela Sikorski, Texas A&M University, Texarkana I feel [the writing] is a strength of the text. The majority of my students report it is easy to follow and understand, even those with limited research knowledge. . . . I have been using this text for the last two years and have found it the most effective in teaching students counseling research. The reasons for this, is it is not written above their current level of understanding and it does give applicable examples to the counseling profession. So often I find counseling students viewing research methods courses as courses they must just get through and not ones that will help them in their future careers. This book . . . does help students understand how this knowledge can benefit them in their future practice. Ryan Melton, Portland State University Strengths [include that it is] easy for students to understand; relates to the counseling profession; [and] contains examples of counseling-related research studies. Dr. Judy Shipp, University of Illinois, Springfield The book is very clear and concise, and it is an easy text for the students to understand. The many examples used throughout the text and sample paper are great resources for the students. . . . It is relevant to counseling students, it has information required by CACREP, and it is a comprehensive research textbook that is easy for students to follow. The examples given are superb and help students achieve course objectives. Lakitta D. Johnson, Jackson State University"
