Electronic Inspection Copy available for instructors here Providing a complete introduction to qualitative methods in psychology, this textbook is ideal reading for anyone doing a research methods course in psychology that includes qualitative approaches or someone planning a practical project using qualitative methods. Not just another research methods book, Doing Qualitative Research in Psychology is more a 'how to do it' manual, linked with a specifically designed set of digitised video recordings, transcripts and online resources to make learning about qualitative methods as easy as possible.

The text offers useful descriptions of how and why research questions are formulated and explains the importance of selecting appropriate methods for research investigations. Using examples from the specially produced data set, it describes four specific qualitative methods, outlining - in its very clear 'how to proceed' style - how each of these methods can form the basis of a qualitative methods laboratory class, practical or field study. As well as covering key topics such as ethics, literature reviews and interviewing, the book also describes precisely how research reports using qualitative methods are written up, in line with the appropriate conventions within psychology.

Hollway and Jefferson have updated their ground-breaking book for students and researchers looking to do qualitative research differently. The new edition critically reviews many of the assumptions, claims and methods of qualitative research and also acts as a `how to' guide to the method the authors call the Free Association Narrative Interview. In the new edition, the authors situate their arguments firmly within a tradition of psychosocial research and show how their method has developed over the last decade. The book follows this approach through the phases of empirical research practice. At each stage they use examples from their own research and end with an extended case study which demonstrates the value of their method in producing a psychosocial research subject; that is, one with socially-imbued depth, complexity and biographical uniqueness.

"The book offers communication researchers some of the best recent work on qualitative inquiry in the human disciplines. . . . Published by Sage, the leading publisher of qualitative research in the social sciences today. . . . This is an important work for it shows how the postpositivist qualitative approach can be inserted into the classical, positivist, medical paradigm. . . . This work brings the communication scholar up-to-date on where qualitative methods are in current sociological and educational discourse." --Norman K. Denzin in Journal of Communication "This book represents a remarkable step forward in the ability of primary care investigators to explore vital research issues related to their disciplines." --from the Foreword by Larry Culpepper "Doing Qualitative Research is the sourcebook for the 1990s for anyone interested in either learning or doing qualitative research. Crabtree and Miller review the many and various qualitative methods in a comprehensive yet systematic treatment. The book is well organized and well written. . . . If you are generally interested in research, read this book to stay informed in the developing specialty of qualitative research. If you wish to learn or do qualitative research, this is an excellent map to the field." --The Journal of Family Practice "The strengths of this book are many. Of particular note is the first chapter, in which Miller and Crabtree present a 'road map' of research methods. They identify five styles of inquiry, ranging from experimental to philosophic, based on the focus and intent of the research. In a further elaboration, they then match research aims and analysis objectives with these styles. This clear and succinct discussion not only helps put the various research styles in perspective but helps one to see the relationship between the aim of the research, analysis objectives, research question(s), and style. . . . [The authors] remind us that research is tied to assumptions concerning reality, knowledge of that reality, and the particular ways of knowing about that reality." --Qualitative Health Research "This volume contains much interesting material about medical research within the primary care sector. It is encouraging to note the value placed on qualitative research approaches by medical clinicians in this field. . . . This useful book restores the balance in concentrating on qualitative medical research within primary care." --Journal of Advanced Nursing "Research that will inform practice and policy of primary care must be driven by the important and central questions, rather than by the tools familiar and available to researchers. The editors of this important book have taken a giant step in creating a language and community of research that can cross disciplinary boundaries to address the important problems that affect most people most of the time. . . . Permitting the methods of biomedical research to constrain our inquiry into the nature of illness and healing has resulted in a totally inadequate knowledge base for primary care. This volume provides a basis for integrative research methods that will rise to the challenges of research in primary care." --Paul A. Nutting, Director, Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network Why are certain research designs selected? How do researchers use codebooks to analyze participant observation field notes? What are the best ways to use word processing software in the management of qualitative data? Edited by two of the top names in the field--Benjamin F. Crabtree and William M. Miller--this volume discusses essential strategies for doing qualitative research. Each chapter establishes the context when the specific methods should be chosen, offers a step-by-step description of the method, tells how the quality of the method is assessed, and provides interesting true-to-life examples. Two concluding chapters "pull it all together" by describing a completed research study of physician health promotion activities, and a study utilizing focus groups to determine a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. Special topics include an overview of qualitative research methods, data collection approaches, strategies for analysis, and special cases of examination. Professionals and students in the health professions will find a wealth of information in Doing Qualitative Research.
