McCarthy, Christopher J.; Whittaker, Tiffany A.; Boyle, Lauren H.; Eyal, Maytal
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v42 n1 p3-16 2017
Rigorous scholarship is essential to the continued growth of group work, yet the unique nature of this counseling specialty poses challenges for quantitative researchers. The purpose of this proposal is to overview unique challenges to quantitative research with groups in the counseling field, including difficulty in obtaining large sample sizes and the violation of the independence assumption. Current practice is illustrated by referencing recent quantitative research in "The Journal for Specialists in Group Work," and recommendations are provided for best practices in designing, analyzing, and reporting quantitative research.
