Book Title: Research and Evaluation in Counseling
Publisher: Brooks Cole
Author: Bradley Erford
Research is often an intimidating topic in a counselor training program-but it doesn't have to be. This text helps to alleviate readers' concerns while helping them learn what they need to know. It presents the most essential components of research and illustrates them with meaningful examples, enabling users to master each component. Recognizing that the profession of counseling has entered the age of accountability, Erford developed RESEARCH AND EVALUATION IN COUNSELING to help educate counselors and future counselors about research and evaluation procedures so that their treatment of clients can be more effective and efficient. Organized into three topical sections, the second edition addresses the curricular requirements of the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), providing the latest information on research, statistics, and evaluation procedures.
