Research Design in Counseling by P.P. Heppner
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This text specifically and fully addresses the particular problems that confront counselling researchers. All examples and illustrations are drawn from the counselling literature, making them relevant to counselling students. The book includes chapters on general design texts, such as process research, analogue designs, and qualitative research. The authors not only present the basics of design; they also seek to demystify the research process and alleviate the anxiety students often have about conducting research.
