RESEARCH METHODS IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY is a reader-friendly introduction to doing, and thinking about, research for clinical psychologists. This systematic guide takes students and practitioners through the basic steps of a research project, from start to finish. It is an invaluable tool for those who want to conduct their own research, or simply want a better understanding of published research.

Chris Barker, Nancy Pistrang and Robert Elliott provide a balanced account of both qualitative and quantitative methods within a framework of methodological pluralism -fitting the method to the research question. This new edition presents many new methods that have developed over the last decade, alongside the more traditional approaches.
