“The real strength of the text is the hands on approach: How to actually do field research rather than just thinking about it. The examples are wonderful. The text is written in a very accessible way for students. It is not filled with jargon. I also like the attention to focus groups as a research method separate from individual interviews. The attention in each chapter to conducting qualitative research in international settings is unique and a real strength of this text.”
Too Narrow a topic for an introductory counseling research class. Does not include program evaluation as required by state licensing boards.
I am an Academic Quality Reviewer of dissertations and I use this book and recommend it to other reviewers. I also cite it in the research courses I teach.
A very thorough introduction to core qualitative methods for the professions.
Great text. Fantastic format. We used this in the Fall and can't wait to adopt it for our Master's theses students in the Spring!
Use for dissertation support and as a "field manual" to assist students in understanding the processes of conducting applied research
