Meta-Analysis: A Systematic Method for Synthesizing Counseling Research
Whiston, Susan C.; Li, Peiwei
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n3 p273-281 Sum 2011
The authors provide a template for counseling researchers who are interested in quantitatively aggregating research findings. Meta-analytic studies can provide relevant information to the counseling field by systematically synthesizing studies performed by researchers from diverse fields. Methodologically sound meta-analyses require careful planning, diligent literature searches, detailed coding of study information, and knowledge of meta-analytic approaches to statistical analyses. The authors provide steps to guide counseling researchers in conducting meta-analytic reviews.
