Doug Sprenkle - Awarded the American Family Therapy Academy (AFTA) 2010 Award for Distinguished Contribution to Family Therapy Research and Practice! Fully revised and updated, the second edition of this widely adopted text and professional reference reflects significant recent changes in the landscape of family therapy research. Leading contributors provide the current knowledge needed to design strong qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-method studies; analyze the resulting data; and translate findings into improved practices and programs. Following a consistent format, user-friendly chapters thoroughly describe the various methodologies and illustrate their applications with helpful concrete examples. Among the ten entirely new chapters in the second edition is an invaluable research primer for beginning graduate students. Other new chapters cover action and participatory research methods, computer-aided qualitative data analysis, feminist autoethnography, performance methodology, task analysis, cutting-edge statistical models, and more.

'... something for everyone; clinicians, students/novice researchers, and experienced family scientists... one of the most important contributions this text makes to the field is that of opening up the world of research to clinicians who may lack this training... rich illustrations of clients and therapy sessions commonly experienced by clinicians make these methodologies germane to their everyday work. Kudos to the chapter authors for revealing the relevance these methodologies have for improving one's clinical work as well... I cannot congratulate and thank the authors and editors enough.' - Journal of Family Therapy 'The second edition of Research Methods in Family Therapy breaks new ground in presenting an in-depth perspective on qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-method approaches to family therapy research. Providing great breadth and depth in each of these areas, the editors have pulled together a close-to-perfect handbook for young researchers entering the field, as well as for seasoned family therapy researchers. Sprenkle and Piercy have given us, once again, an ideal text in family therapy research methodology.' - William M. Pinsof, PhD, The Family Institute at Northwestern University
