Assignment Description As a counselor, you will regularly use professional literature to inform your work. Many of the important questions that you will have as your career evolves will be answered by researchers conducting qualitative studies. The qualitative designs permit researchers to answer questions that cannot be answered by quantitative designs, by examining people’s subjective worlds as directly as possible, through their own narratives. For this assignment, you will create a mini research proposal. As you work through the units relevant to qualitative research concepts think through a possible qualitative study. Your work on this assignment will demonstrate that you understand the importance of the alignment of the elements of a study and how they work together. Use the Unit 8 Assignment Template to complete the assessment.
