This involves considering previous research, the literature recommendations for additional research, and so on.

It is here that researchers fine-tune their design selection and participant recruitment process, and consider validity and reliability issues and analytical procedures. Principles of Multiculturalism and Diversity

As clinicians, we will find ourselves working with a diverse population of clients. It is essential for us to be well-versed in the various multicultural differences, including sexual orientation, gender, and race. Principles of Multiculturalism and Diversity
