Darlington College tutors join forces to pen new book
11:44am Tuesday 3rd December 2013 in News
COLLEGE lecturers have joined forces to write a definitive book to help students with their research.
Darlington College tutor Christopher Hall and his former colleague Graham Bright have spent nearly two years writing the textbook Understanding Research in Counselling.
Mr Bright had the idea while working at Darlington College and has now completed the project in his new role at the York St John University, helped by Mr Hall and Redcar and Cleveland College tutors Gill Harrison and John Dixon.
Nine chapters and 170 pages long, the book is designed to help anyone involved in counselling with research into the subject.
“There is a nervousness about conducting research for the first time both with the literature and face to face interviews with people,” said Mr Bright.
“Therapy is an intuitive process to find out what is going on in people’s lives and research is just the same.”
Mr Hall said: “We are pleased and feel it is prestigious to complete such a work that hopefully students will be able to engage with.”
