The author focuses on writing qualitative manuscripts. She notes that qualitative methodology is often appropriate for the questions counselors and counselor educators want to research. In qualitative research, authors must ensure that the type of research and its methods are appropriate for the study's purpose, that their methods establish trustworthiness, and that they show reflexivity. Paradigms of research are discussed.
