Counselor education programs are ethically bound to teach methods of research and evaluation so counselors may identify counseling methods that have a reasonable probability of success. Single-case design represents rigorous research practice, is amenable to practice. and allows the practitioner the opportunity to explore interventions from quantitative and qualitative perspectives. Key elements of single-case methodology are reviewed, including benefits, specific details, and pitfalls related to conducting single-case research with children. A case study and suggestions for implementation in counselor education are provided.
