Developing and enhancing research capacity in counselling and psychotherapy: a research training manual

John McLeod, Robert Elliott, Sue Wheeler, BACP (Funder), ESRC (Funder), University of Leicester (Funder)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This manual contains a wide range of research training resources that can be used for teaching counsellors and psychotherapists. There are lectures, PowerPoint presentations, information handouts and leaflets and experiential exercises. Some of these resources may be used in routine counsellor and psychotherapist training sessions and others specifically for research methods training. While much of the material has an academic level of Masters degree in mind, many of the resources have wide applicability, from undergraduate level to doctoral study. The manual takes an experiential approach to research training, encouraging students to learn by doing rather than listening. It is also firmly rooted in the belief that all counsellors and psychotherapists need to understand and be involved with research in some way. [With accompanying DVD]
