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.
