Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This extraordinary volume addresses the practice of psychology in the context of scientific inquiry, regarding practitioners as "local clinical scientists" and addressing the validity of their methodology through the philosophy of science. Positivistic/empirical, idealist/pragmatic, and socio-cultural/constructionist approaches are all considered by the authors as they discuss such topics as research design, quantitative analysis, the linkage of theory and data, and qualitative analysis. Rigorous and far-sighted, this profound meditative discourse will prove fruitful reading for professionals and academics in the fields of mental health and social work.

Book News Annotation:

Provides a primer on the application of scientific logic to professional psychological practice, demonstrating how scientific reliance on aggregate data can be reconciled with the unique and immediate demands of the clinic. Part I examines the history of the science-practice debate in professional psychology, and Part II looks at issues in the philosophy of science, research design, and quantitative analysis. Part III deals with nontraditional science and scholarship, with chapters on qualitative analysis, and critical thinking and the clinical scientist.
