Overview

Carrying out research has become increasingly important for psychotherapists in clinical practice. Relational-centred Research for Psychotherapists: Exploring Meanings and Experience addresses this clear need by providing a practical introduction to developing relational-centred qualitative research.

Readers are offered many practical examples of small-scale research that is firmly grounded in clinical experience. Advocating a qualitative research approach, the examples mirror relational-centred practice by placing the emphasis on conducting research with participants, not on them. Finlay and Evans demonstrate that many of the familiar clinical skills, values, and interests of therapists - such as interviewing skills, reflexive interpretation and inferential thinking - are, in fact, transferable to the research domain, while knowledge of research processes and findings can further enhance clinical therapy.

As an accessible introduction to setting up and conducting research, this book is the long-awaited answer to increasing competencies for psychotherapists and counselors in clinical practice.
