Qualitative Research in Counseling: A Reflection for Novice Counselor Researchers
Bowers, Randolph; Minichiello, Victor; Plummer, David
Qualitative Report, v12 n1 p131-145 Mar 2007
Counselors practice in a wide range of disciplines, but also represent a distinct discipline separate from medicine, psychology, and social work. Particularly in countries like Australia, Canada, and the Asia Pacific nations, as a relatively new field, counseling is taking up the challenges of encouraging a research culture that can both critique and support clinical practice and counselor education. This paper is thus written to support novice counselor researchers, and to inspire an emerging research culture through sharing formative experiences and lessons learned during a qualitative research project exploring minority issues in counseling.
