About this item

"This is a beautifully balanced, accessible, and updated text by skilled scientist-practitioners that covers the breadth of research methods needed for students and practitioners engaged in learning the art of designing and delivering high-quality research. I can thoroughly recommend it."

Michael Barkham, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Director, Centre for Psychological Services

"Research Methods in Clinical Psychology offers a comprehensive and up-to-date presentation of a wide array of research approaches in an extremely clear and---rare in this field---enjoyable manner. Balancing both the forest and the trees, the book adeptly encompasses the theoretical/conceptual, the technical, and the practical/applied, never losing sight of the contexts in which we conduct research and the real-world, as well as scientific, issues involved therein."

David Glenwick, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Fordham University

Innovatively addressing and explaining the most important changes in the psychological research world today, few other books include the scope and substance represented in this innovative and thoughtful text."

Leonard A. Jason, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, DePaul University
