Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

This manual contains a wide range of research training resources that can be used for teaching counsellors and psychotherapists. There are lectures, PowerPoint presentations, information handouts and leaflets and experiential exercises. Some of these resources may be used in routine counsellor and psychotherapist training sessions and others specifically for research methods training. While much of the material has an academic level of Masters degree in mind, many of the resources have wide applicability, from undergraduate level to doctoral study. The manual takes an experiential approach to research training, encouraging students to learn by doing rather than listening. It is also firmly rooted in the belief that all counsellors and psychotherapists need to understand and be involved with research in some way. [With accompanying DVD]
