Research for the Helping Professions by William K. Wilkinson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Written with beginning graduate students in mind, Research for the Helping Professions focuses on the helping professional as a consumer of reserach as well as a "doer." With the help of this clearly written book, students with little or no background in research will learn to evaluate the research they read and see its application to their own lives and jobs. In addition, the book gives students the guidance they need to conduct research for their graduate programs. Each chapter opens with a vignette that shows a student, Maria Gonzalez, actually doing a research project. These vignettes follow Maria as she prepares to do her research project and then through every step as she progresses.
