Reviews

'The authors of this very personal book seem to have really understood student anxieties about embarking on research. The whole project of getting to grips with research methods is brought alive through examples from the authors' own teaching of research methods. One of the inspired pedagogical methods is the use of debate to get students to articulate their approach and back this up from role played perspectives like that of a service commissioner. The reader is encouraged to adopt a critical stance in relation to the text, throughout, and the 'student voice' is used as a critical commentary.

The process of research is used as a model of collaborative and experiential learning, which makes this book very different from most of the research methods texts already 'out there'. The language of research is used throughout, in order to help students to begin to identify as researchers (e.g. 'your findings'; 'our findings'). This is set to become an essential part of every counselling trainer's reading list, serving as it does to demystify research and set learning through research firmly within counsellor training. My students will read it with relish' -
Bonnie Meekums, PhD,Lecturer in counselling and psychotherapy at University of Leeds


This is an engaging, useful and readable introduction to undertaking research in counselling and psychotherapy...The constant yet subtle introduction of key concepts throughout the text make this a great introduction for those wishing to understand more about why research is important in this field. -- Jo Pybis
