Promoting Research as a Core Value in Master's-Level Counselor Education
Huber, Charles H.; Savage, Todd A.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v48 n3 p167-178 Mar 2009
Theory, practice, and research are all espoused to be core values within counselor education. The authors assert that research needs to become directly associated with theory and practice for it to be a concurrent core value. "Action research" is most simply defined as a form of research that is practitioner based. The authors propose infusing action research throughout master's-level curricula as a means of promoting research as a core value concurrent with theory and practice. A case illustration of an action research investigation in a Professional and Ethical Issues in Mental Health Counseling course is described.
