Reviews

'The goal is to reassure the timid PhD candidate that yes, indeed, she or he can complete a project that is fulfilling, comprehensive, and firmly grounded in some research tradition. Higgins achieves this goal replete with specific examples of expressive therapies research. The only publication of its kind.'
- Art Therapy

'...particularly good at ensuring that the right questions are asked throughout the course of the dissertation. It ensures that readers think through what they are planning to do in great detail.'
- Disability Scotland

'A step-by-step guide to dissertation research and writing combining both the principles of qualitative and quantitative methodology, and the nitty gritty of writing a successful research work.'
- SciTech Book News

'This book's value lies in stimulating thought about the research process while giving an overview of the process of putting together a dissertation... many people contemplating what a dissertation or a thesis is all about will find a useful read.'
- Nursing Times

'This compact book demystifies the research process and should give even the most hesitant investigator the courage to proceed. Brief exercises and plentiful examples from arts therapy research help to stimulate thought and concretize concepts. This bookis the ideal place to begin. The copious citations throughout the text offer a generous list of supplemental sources that can assist in filling the gaps.'
