9780335241514: Qualitative Research Methods in Psychology: From core to combined approaches

"This book provides an introduction to four widely used qualitative research methods, followed by a detailed discussion of a pluralistic approach to qualitative research...makes exceellent use of questions both in order to help the reader gain clarity as well as to encourage reflexivity."
The Psychologist, May 2012

"The book makes excellent use of questions throughout, both in order to help the reader gain clarity regarding the ontological and epistemological assumptions underpinning different approaches to qualitative research, as well as to encourage reflexivity regarding the process of conducting qualitative research.

The discussion of pluralism in Part 2 of the book is detailed and helpful, providing both guidance as to how to work pluralistically, as well as offering a welcome argument in favour of llooseningthe bonds of 'methodolatry, and to allow the research to be driven by questions and curiosity rather than by the researcher's commitment to a particular methodological approach."
Carla Willig, Professor of Psychology, City University, London, UK

"Essential for any Qualitative researcher"

"Covers a wide range of topics"

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.

Contributors: Cigdem Esin, Amanda Holt, Pnina Shinebourne and Sevasti-Melissa Nolas
