Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An essential volume for genetic counseling research supervisors and their students, as well as practicing genetic counselors who have exciting research ideas but lack expertise in research design and development. Practical exercises help build confidence and skills to unleash your inner investigator. I wish this book were available when I first started my research activities." —Robert Resta, Genetic Counselor, Swedish Medical Center, Seattle, WA

"To fully realize the potential of Genetic Counseling, its practitioners must take an active role in executing, translating, and interpreting research. The field is now fortunate to have a valuable resource at hand, in the form of Genetic Counseling Research: A Practical Guide. The range of topics, its practical focus, and accessible style will make it the definitive resource as Genetic Counselors become ever more critical to realizing the promise of genomic medicine." —Jim Evans, MD, PhD, Bryson Distinguished Professor of Genetics & Medicine, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
