As you continue to hone a theoretical approach, consider how the identified perspective compares to your assumptions, values, and view of therapeutic change. In this discussion, you will examine various aspects of your personal and professional therapeutic process to further assess your primary counseling style.
- Describe evidence based approaches to establish relationships with clients using the Clinical Interviewing textbook.
- Utilizing the Pompeo and Levitt article for support, describe how your self-awareness has grown since starting your graduate program, and how the process can continue as you anticipate building ethical professional counselor-client relationships.Discussion 1: Sampling Structures
Probability and nonprobability are the two general categories of sampling. Probability sampling uses random selection, whereas nonprobability sampling does not.
For example, if you wanted to study the effects of divorce on the psychological development of adolescents, you could gather a population of a certain number of adolescents whose parents were divorced. Then, out of that population, you could randomly select 25 of those people. If you wanted to use nonprobability sampling, you would choose specific people who had met predetermined criteria.
For this Discussion, consider how samples would be chosen for both probability and nonprobability sampling structures.
Post your explanation of the following:
•Using your research problem and the refined question you developed in Week 4, develop two sampling structures: probability and nonprobability.
•Explain who would be included in each sample and how each sample would be selected.
•Be specific about the sampling structures you chose, evaluating both strengths and limitations of each.
