McLeod covers in real depth and high quality how to complete case study research, would definitely recommend.
Always have enjoyed John McLeod's writing style ever since I first started training and this book has not disapointed me.
My students have said they also find him easy to read and digest, brilliant.
A good book in preparing students how to conduct case study research in counselling and psychotherapy
Very good book that highlights the focus of counselling and psychotherapy using detailed case studies.
John McLeod writes with his usual high level of insight and accessibility in this fascinating book, which is a must for everyone interested in counselling research. The examples provided give a new way of exploring ideas and concepts. Well written throughout, this is a vital book for anyone in the field - practitioners and students alike.
Essential of considering doing case study research - recommended for those who are not yet sure re the method to use for their research
John McLeod has provided an essential reference for training the new generation of research savvy psychotherapists. This book brings more than just the "what" and "how" - it reveals credibility, rigour and dignity in human ways of researching human process to develop more humane practice and research.
This book adds a useful source for students with a particular interest in case study methodology. In particular Counselling students, who struggle with positivistic approaches, welcome such a clear text that puts their own pratice into an evidence-based context.
This is an excellent addition to support students conducting their own research study as part of their higher education training. It clearly helps them to navigate their way through the research process and the use of case study research for further development of counselling practice.
This text offers students the opportunity to grasp the importance of using case studies to inform research and is recommended for our students taking an Introduction to Evidence based practice in counselling module
An excellent textbook with clear guidelines to help students understand the importance of developing consistent methods for gathering evidence as they work with cases. The role of case studies for students as they learn about the different theories is essential for them to grasp a practical understanding of applications. This book covers the knowledge of writing case reports in a clear and comprehensive way.
John McLeod is and probably always will be the author we recommend when talking about evidence based practice. His other texts in Doing Counselling Research and Qualitative Research are seminal in this context. This text fills the gap around working with case studies in research, and is very relevant as this is an area that most counsellors will need to be familiar with. The book is well written and if possible makes the subject even more approachable and interesting.
An excellent book which helps people understand the ethics and processes involved in a case study approach. Some very useful examples contained within the book which makes the subject understandable. It has provided me with the motivation to consider applying this in my own practice.
Part of the beauty of this book is the accessibility of the author; as he brings the reader through an exciting, interesting, pragmatic and richly informed account of living qualitative research in action. The book considers; pragmatic, n=1, HSCED, theory-building adn one of my personal favourites - narrative approaches. This book is a required resource for anyone interested in qualitative research or therapy practice. A gem.
A thorough and rigorous review of the latest developments in case study research. Important reading for all counselling and psychotherapy research students, and practitioners who want to write up their clinical work.
This is a useful book, that makes a considered case for the the use of Case Studies for effective research as well as a developmental method for students.
Excellent book, which fills a gap in the current literature; especially useful in clinical psychology training where alternatives to n=1 empirical case studies are not widely accepted.
