Book Description

Providing practical guidance on carrying out qualitative research in psychology, using methods singly or in combination, this textbook supports students from the beginning of their research experience at undergraduate level through to postgraduate research and beyond.

The text introduces four widely used qualitative approaches, grounded theory, interpretative phenomenological analysis, discourse analysis and narrative analysis - and then considers ways of combining the approaches. Each chapter focuses on practical aspects of pluralistic study design and application, including participant recruitment, ethics, data interpretation and writing up.

The book reflects the latest developments in qualitative research and includes several features designed to illustrate the applications of these, including:
  • Clear chapter introductions and summaries
  • Descriptive case studies and group projects
  • Reflections on practice
  • Problem-based questions
  • Research examples

The contributors bring personal insight into qualitative research practice, covering key areas of psychology, including: health psychology, social psychology, criminal psychology, gender studies, psychotherapy and counselling psychology and organizational psychology.
