Abstract

Providing practical guidance on carrying out qualitative research in psychology, using methods singly and in combination, this textbook supports students from the beginning of their research experience at undergraduate level through to postgraduate research and beyond. The book first introduces four widely used qualitative approaches: grounded theory, interpretative phenomenological analysis, discourse analysis and narrative analysis - and then considers ways of combining these approaches. Chapters focus 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 in psychology, including examples from social psychology, gender studies, psychotherapy and counselling and organisational psychology.
