Clinical researchers who have an active clinical practice are rare. Therapists who conduct therapy research are rarer still. Why is this the case? And why is the study of the practice often so far from the actual practice? If the practice and research worlds of therapy are to be bridged, might clinician-researchers—professionals who do both—play an important role in this process? A career engaged both with providing therapy and researching therapy is unique. This book combines original empirical work, theory, and first-person scholarly narratives authored by clinical mental health professionals in the early, middle, and later stages of their careers as they highlight the rewards, challenges, and potent areas of synergy they experience as clinician-researchers. This book was originally published as a special issue of Counselling Psychology Quarterly.
