7. Practice-Based Research: Meeting the Demands of Program Evaluation through the Single-Case Design (Pages 364-376)

Tiffany Nielson

The counseling profession is moving toward a foundation in outcome research to enhance the validity and efficacy of clinical mental health counselors. A disparity between the roles of researcher and counselor has resulted in counselors relying on other professions to validate their work. To remedy this gap, practice-based research using the single-case design is promoted as a suitable method for counselors. Current research is explored to highlight the value of the single-case design in clinical practice and program evaluation. How the Accountability Bridge Counseling Program Evaluation Model (Astramovich & Coker, 2007) can be applied to single-case design is described. The use of feedback-informed treatment systems is shown to be a feasible measurement system for this method and for counseling practice. Suggestions are made for future research.
