Dee Danchev is a counselling psychologist and Pastoral Advisor at Nuffield College, Oxford.
Alistair Ross is Director of Psychodynamic Studies and Dean of Kellogg College, Oxford.
The real strength of the book is its conscientious unpicking of the research process via an ethically-informed lens. Addressing ethical issues is very much seen and presented as a process, as, for example, in obtaining informed consent, leading up to the a very useful discussion about the ethics involved in getting your research findings out into the real world. This stage is often missing from many student research proposals in my experience.
