Course Catalog


Research Methods and Ethics in Clinical Psychology

The goal of this course is to provide you with the expertise necessary (a) to evaluate the adequacy of published research and to draw your own conclusions from existing empirical findings, (b) to generate logical, novel hypotheses based on theories, observations, and prior empirical results about psychopathology and psychotherapy, (c) to create valid experimental and descriptive studies and use other designs and methodologies to test those hypotheses, and (d) to learn to consider and apply ethical principles to clinical research. Attention will also be paid to non-hypothesis-driven empirical methods although the qualitative methods course will be necessary in order to develop expertise in this area.
