Cavell, Timothy A.; Snyder, Douglas K.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v17 n2 p167-71 Apr 1991
Disputes Moon, Dillon, and Sprenkle's (1990) claims regarding advantages of qualitative methods and limitations of quantitative approaches for family therapy research. Supports role of qualitative research in theory development and concurs that exclusive allegiance to standard methods may limit attention to important family therapy processes; but also asserts need to document generalizability of informal observations using quantitative techniques.
