Despite the existence of a large number of research methods textbooks, until now there has not been one offering coherent discussion of or clearly outlining a 'strategy' for research. How to do Research is intended to decisively redress this imbalance. Offering practical advice on all methodological aspects of research from literature review and interpretation of findings - to development of theories, writing and publication, this book also provides a consideration of the major conceptual aspects of conducting research. The whole process of research, from philosophical underpinnings to key concepts in implementation, is critically examined and practical advice provided. This book will be a useful resource for post-graduate students, at both MA and PhD level, for anyone in the early years of an academic career and for those carrying out research for the first time. Despite the existence of a large number of research methods textbooks, until now there has not been one offering coherent discussion of or clearly outlining a 'strategy' for research.

This new edition of Nick Moore's highly successful "How to do Research" offers an accessible guide to the complete research process. It focuses on the day-to-day requirements of project, managing a piece of research right through from the formulation of the initial idea, to the development of a research proposal and then to the writing up and disseminating of results.

This book bridges the gap that currently exists between research and practice in counselling and psychotherapy by providing detailed clinical examples of the practical relevance of research. It brings together contributions from leading British and American psychotherapy researchers, who describe their research programmes and explore how their findings can substantially inform therapeutic practice.

'This book will be really useful to all teachers of upper Primary/lower Secondary pupils but will be especially useful as a resource for using with gifted children of 9 to12 years, as it will promote and support the type of self-directed, investigative enquiry that they enjoy. The author also emphasises the importance of the research process rather than the written product, which will appeal to all those children who dislike the written presentation of work!
