Below are some additional papers and other resources that people have asked to be made available on the CCP website, starting with a presentation by Prof. Robert Elliott:
Three resource sheets from Wendy and one from an earlier version of the course:
- Positivist Approach to Research.
- Post-positivist Approach to Research: in context.
- Access to Resources for Research.
- How to do a Literature Search.
The slides that Prof. Mick Cooper used in the video we watched in January:
- What do we know about the effectiveness of counselling and psychotherapy? – Cooper, Mick, presentation to Newport Centre for Counselling Research Conference, 2009.
A couple of measures (questionnaires) that can be very useful for case study research:
- CORE-OM (Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation – Outcome Measure) – one of the most widely-used quantitative measures of the client’s psychological distress.
- CORE System User Manual – explains how to use the whole CORE system, not just the CORE-OM measure.
- Helpful Aspects of Therapy form – a simple but well-respected qualitative form that aims to capture the client’s experience of therapy.
Some very useful chapters from Ryan, Anne B. (2006), Researching and Writing your thesis: a guide for postgraduate students, National University of Ireland, Maynooth:
- Post-Positivist Approaches to Research.
- Doing a Review of Literature.
- Methodology: Collecting Data.
