Summary

In fulfilling the need for a beginner's manual in mental health research, the authors have written an insightful exposition of the fundamental factors essential to good research. This articulately written manual teaches how to formulate a clear hypothesis, select a representative population, conduct a valid study, and describe results in an intelligible manner. The experienced authors thoroughly explain the need for acquiring a research attitude--an inquiring and critical mind--and then discuss how mental health research is done, using anecdotal case reports, studies with only a few variables, and complex investigations of multiple variables as examples. A wide range of research possiblilities is explored, including those that require little or no financial support.
