She is convinced that in order to obtain valid data, she must keep the research participants ignorant in many respects of what she is doing. She believes that it is important that her clients be unaware that they are being studied and also unaware of the hypothesis under investigation. Although she agrees that some ethical issues may be raised by her failing to inform her clients, she thinks that good research designs call for such procedures. She does not want to influence her clients and thus bias her results. She contends that her practice of gathering data from her clients without them knowing are justified because there are no negative consequences or risks involved with her research. She further contends that if she is able to refine her therapeutic techniques through her research this will benefit future clients.
