Summary

Textbooks traditionally used in research methods courses generally are either written for fields other than counseling and education or take the higher-level 'developing and designing' approach that is irrelevant to counseling students. This textbook is written specifically for basic research methods courses in masters-level education and counseling programs. It focuses on interpretation and evaluation of scholarly and scientific research and then takes students through the process of developing research projects. Using concrete examples from the professional literature, Counseling and Educational Research clearly illustrates the research concepts that will be valuable to future professionals. Although it is primarily intended as a text, this volume will have enormous value to practitioners. It emphasizes the importance of being a good consumer of research and attempts to teach the practitioner how to conduct research practically. Throughout the book are examples from the professional literature to illustrate how to interpret and evaluate research.
