Practitioner Research in Counselling
- John McLeod - University of Oslo, Norway
This practical, informative and encouraging guide to doing research in counselling and the helping professions generally has been written with practitioners firmly in mind.
The book is a comprehensive yet accessible introduction which covers all major aspects of research and guides the reader through the essential processes involved, from setting up and conducting a study, to analyzing data and evaluating findings. In addition, the author provides guidelines for accessing research information and resources. With an emphasis on the acquisition of research skills and their practical application to counselling issues, Practitioner Research in Counselling shows how research can be used in a meaningful way by all practitioners.
This remains a thorough and practical text however the year of publication does need to be taken into account.
As with all John McLeod's books, an extremely interesting and useful text.
Once again John McLeod has written a book which can be useful at a number of levels. However I feel the appearance and layout of the book is now a bit dated, and more difficult to dip into than some more up to date volumes.
