Book Description

RESEARCH IN REHABILITATION COUNSELING provides the basics that one would need to begin conducting a research investigation. It was written as a primary text for graduate level students and practitioners concerning the role of research in contemporary rehabilitation counseling. It is the authors intent to provide a comprehensive overview of the philosophical, ethical, methodological, and analytic fundamentals of social science research, as well as to specify aspects of rehabilitation research that distinguish it from scientific inquiry in other helping professions. It has been thoroughly revised to accurately reflect the variation and wealth of research methodologies used in contemporary rehabilitation counseling research more than 300 new references have been added. Most of the research examples cited were published in peer-reviewed rehabilitation counseling journals over the past decade, and these examples represent the current status of research methods as well as the most relevant contemporary topic areas of research and scholarship in the field. Accordingly, it may be used both as a research textbook and as a general introduction to the current scholarship. Because this book was written as an introductory research methods textbook for graduate students in rehabilitation counseling, the authors focus much of the information contained herein on the role of readers as professional consumers of rehabilitation research. It will prove to be an invaluable resource for counselors, administrators, policymakers, educators, researchers, people with disabilities, and consumer advocates.
