With an emphasis on do-able research, the book examines the dilemmas and challenges for clinicians in recruiting participants and combining research with clinical practice, and includes step by step guides to doing research projects. What are the benefits of conducting research while practising? Which research methods are most suitable for busy practitioners? How can practitioners weave research into their everyday practice without it becoming a burdensome add-on? What practical and ethical considerations should counsellors and therapists take into account when researching? This book focuses on the issues facing practising clinicians wishing to engage in research. It outlines approaches involving both clients and other professionals in the research and argues for approaches that combine an exploration of the experience as well as the effectiveness of therapies.
