Single-Case Design in Child Counseling Research: Implications for Counselor Education
Ray, Dee C.; Minton, Casey A. Barrio; Schottelkorb, April A.; Brown, April Garofano
Counselor Education and Supervision, v49 n3 p193-208 Mar 2010
Counselor education programs are ethically bound to teach methods of research and evaluation so counselors may identify counseling methods that have a reasonable probability of success. Single-case design represents rigorous research practice, is amenable to practice, and allows the practitioner the opportunity to explore interventions from quantitative and qualitative perspectives. Key elements of single-case methodology are reviewed, including benefits, specific details, and pitfalls related to conducting single-case research with children. A case study and suggestions for implementation in counselor education are provided.
