The final chapter provides a summary as well as space for reflection on the research journey; readers are encouraged to revisit their assumptions about research and why it is important for counsellors and psychotherapists to be engaged with research (Chapter 1).
Readers are also be encouraged to reflect on their commitment to staying informed about research findings and to think pragmatically about how to ensure that they do. In doing so, the chapter addresses the issue of how research awareness and activity can contribute to both career development and the development of practitioner competencies. The chapter ends with a challenge to readers to continue to engage in their own research (as creators as well as consumers) and provides some practical guidance and recommendations on how to integrate research into training and professional life.
