Course descriptionThis course builds upon the core research training course Between Counselling and Research 1: Approaches, Issues and Debates. While the latter provides a comprehensive introduction to epistemological and philosophical issues surrounding research in counselling and psychotherapy, this course uses a range of participatory methods to explore practice-based approaches to research for counselling practitioners. The course introduces students to a variety of approaches to, and methodologies employed in, practice-focused research. Students are required to develop research proposals for Masters dissertations or Doctoral theses as appropriate, and to present their proposed research to peers and tutors.
