Question description

As you learned about various types of counseling approaches,

of quantitative inquiry. However, the type of quantitative method used to
explore these questions could vary widely from researcher to researcher. Each
of the methods of quantitative inquiry has both strengths and weaknesses, and
it is important to understand the elements of each approach. As you explore the
