Taking students through each aspect of the research process and explaining the unique challenges of using qualitative methods in psychology, this book offers students a map for successfully completing a qualitative psychological research project.
Beginning with ethics and quality, and moving through to literature reviews, methodologies, analysis, and writing up research reports, it is not a theoretical methods book, but a ‘how to’ manual. It folds key skills like research design, technology, and software into each chapter to introduce readers gently but thoroughly to foundational concepts that will support them through each step. With new chapters on thematic and narrative analysis, this new edition also offers a set of digital resources designed to make learning about qualitative methods as easy and interactive as possible.
These resources include:
- Datasets to practice manipulating data
- Video recordings and transcripts to build key analysis techniques
- Video interviews with the editors and contributors to provide expert top tips
Through a pragmatic, practical lens, this book provides the perspective and the tools students need to recognize, collect, interpret, and communicate quality qualitative psychological data.
