Research Methods in Rehabilitation
This course is designed to give students an understanding of basic concepts in research, including theory, design, variables, measurement, hypothesis testing, and validity.
The focus of the course is on conceptual rather than computational aspects of research. The student will learn how to design outcome studies with an appreciation of stakeholder involvement. Opportunities and threats associated with the evidence-based practice movement will be debated. Students will develop knowledge and skills to critically evaluate the applicability of research to practice. Students will explore their values and beliefs about the role of research in rehabilitation counseling and their identity as a scientist-practitioner.
