The Third Edition of Counseling and Educational Research: Evaluation and Application emphasizes the importance of being a good consumer of research and teaches readers how to conduct research in practice. Written in an engaging, conversational tone, the book uses concrete examples from professional literature to demonstrate how to effectively evaluate and interpret research articles-without relying on discipline-specific jargon. The Third Edition features new examples, updated research, a new chapter on single-subject research, a new chapter on the use of technology and research, and much more.

"Houser is the best text available for a master's level course that examines research from the perspective of counseling practitioners rather than researchers." -- Annette F. Nelligan, University of Maine
"Houser describes research methodology and techniques in a way that novice researchers can understand. This book is written in a wonderful transparent style." -- Delila Owens, Indiana Wesleyan University
"The Counseling and Educational Research text is a wonderful way to help familiarize Masters-level counseling students with the research process, and how it can be used to enhance their own understanding of research. It is a practical and easy read...I would recommend it for any Master-level counseling course." -- Ja'net M. Seward, Midwestern University
"Houser is an exceptional writer whose examples and explanations assist each one of us in understanding the complexity of research." -- Jo Ann Jankoski, Penn State University
"This textbook is timely, relevant, and student friendly." -- Lakitta Johnson, Jackson State University
"This text is an effective tool in counseling research education. It reads easy and is clear in both clarity and flow." -- Shon D. Smith, Argosy University, Sarasota
Throughout the book, I was struck with Houser's lucidity and skill in summarising. Overall the short, well-researched chapters do work. As a Third Edition, the book has many updated features. The book is both generally useful and particularly suitable for those in the education and counselling ??????fields. -- Dr Anuradha J Bakshi
