Understanding Research in Clinical and Counseling Psychology, Second Edition, is written and designed for graduate students in the psychology and counseling fields, for whom the value of psychological research is not always readily apparent. Contributed to by experts in their respective fields, this text presents research as an indispensable tool for practice, a tool that is used every day to advance knowledge and improve assessment, treatment choice, and client outcomes. The book is divided into four logical parts: Research Foundations, Research Strategies, Research Practice, and finally, Special Problems. Included is a chapter that addresses one of the most important controversies, the distinction between realistic and “gold standard” efficacy studies. The remainder of the book addresses salient issues such as conducting research in various cultures, operating an empirically-oriented practice, and performing research with families, children, and the elderly. Students and professors will find the coverage ample and penetrating, without being too overwhelming.

Review:

“Finally – a graduate level text that covers research methodology, common strategies, and ethics, perfectly balancing scientific rigor and the vagaries of clinical practice. This book provides students with a solid background by which to begin their research careers, as both practitioners and consumers of science. It will become the gold standard for graduate courses in research methodology.” - Deborah C. Beidel, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychology, Director, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, University of Central Florida, USA

“This edited book is an excellent resource for graduate students in applied psychology programs and related fields.  The chapters, which are well written, concise, and informative, will facilitate their understanding and appreciation of the research process.” - Rex Forehand, PhD, University Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of Vermont, USA

“Drs. Thomas and Hersen have organized an excellent and extremely useful guide for students of applied social sciences interested in the translation of research to practice. The text is eminently practical, combining excellent reviews of basic research principles followed by real world application of these principles. I particularly enjoyed the extremely well balanced chapter on efficacy vs. effectiveness research, and I think it would be fun for both students and professor alike to participate in a course designed around this book.” - Ron Acierno, PhD, Director, PTSD Clinical Team, Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center, Charleston; Professor, Psychiatry Medical University of South Carolina, USA
