Scientists from six countries, well known for their work in the field of identity research, explain and comment on methodological approaches used to research identity. This book concentrates on qualitative methods, such as narrative identity analysis or semi-structured interviewing techniques to determine identity status, as well as the quantitative method of using questionnaires. It also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of these methods and their future integration. The reader will learn about qualitative and quantitative research and discover the similarities and differences between the methods of researching identity, depending on research with methodological roots in one field, the other, or both. Chapters include: .James E. Marcia presents his latest thoughts and experiences regarding the identity status concept and focuses on the Identity Status Interview (ISI) as a method to obtain empirical access to ego identity development. .Guenter Mey presents a case study from his project "Adolescence, Identity, Narration" based on problem-centered interviews and the specific interviewing, transcription, and data analysis procedures utilized. .Mechthild Kiegelmann introduces the Voice Approach, a qualitative-oriented research method developed by Carol Gilligan, Lyn Brown, and their colleagues, which can be applied to identity research. .Luc Goossens and Koen Luyckx present their results, which are mostly based on questionnaires offering a broad range of data analyses. .Wim Meeus, the author of the Utrecht-Groningen Identity Development Scale, and Minet de Wied offer an overview of twenty-five years of research on relationships with parents and identity in adolescence."

"This Pocket Guide to narrative inquiry will present the method's major theoretical underpinnings; rationales for use of narrative research methods within life history and case study frameworks; primary strategies for eliciting, listening to, and transcribing first-person oral narratives; prevailing analytic frameworks for analysis of such data; ethical considerations and Institutional Review Board-related challenges in narrative inquiry; and issues pertaining to trustworthiness and theoretical and empirical generalization. The author, an esteemed researcher, will illustrate concepts from her on-going narrative investigation of abusive and neglectful mothers who lost and regained custody of their children within one impoverished community, a useful site from which to discuss issues of memory, trauma, context and process, and narrative truth. References to exemplary published narrative studies of questions of concern to social work practitioners in the areas of psychotherapy, child welfare practice, and organizational/community practice, for example, will also be included. The volume is designed, in short, to address the issues an investigator would need to consider in order to develop a narrative inquiry: questions of theory, method, and meaning. Yet, it is not proscriptive. It will focus on the topical areas an investigator should address when planning a narrative study, and it provides a summary of two or three ways in which scholars have answered each one. This approach recognizes the connections among epistemology, features of social work problems, and method that defy simple categorization and acknowledges the emergent and interdisciplinary nature of narrative inquiry."--Provided by publisher.

'Jane Elliott's examination of the use of "narrative" within the broad context of social science inquiry is a must-read for both qualitative and quantitative researchers, novice and expert alike' - Journal of Advanced Nursing `This important book does an impressive job of synthesising a complex literature and bringing together both qualitative and quantitative methods of narrative analysis. It will become a milestone in the development of narrative methods. Although ground-breaking in many ways, it is very clearly written and accessible to readers from a wide variety of backgrounds and methodological experience' - Nigel Gilbert, University of Surrey `An elegantly written, scholarly and accessible text. Jane Elliott shows a sophisticated appreciation of contemporary methodological developments, and makes a persuasive case for the use of narrative approaches in both qualitative and quantitative research. The book challenges and advances debates about combining methods, and shows how stories can work within and across conventional research boundaries. It is a truly original contribution to the literature' - Amanda Coffey, Cardiff School of Social Sciences `An outstanding book. Jane Elliott breaks new ground by demonstrating to new generations of social scientists how the power of narrative can fruitfully be harnessed in social research. This is a "must read" book' - Professor Mike Savage, University of Manchester This is a lucid and accessible introduction to narrative methods in social research. It is also an important book about the nature, role and theoretical basis of research methodology in general. Jane Elliott instructs the reader on the basic methods and methodological assumptions that form the basis of narrative methods. She does so in a way that is practical and accessible and in a way that will make the book a favourite with students and experienced researchers alike. Elliott argues that both qualitative and quantitative methods are characterised by a concern with narrative, and that our research data can best be analyzed if it is seen in narrative terms. In concrete, step-by-step terms she details for the reader how to go about collecting data and how to subject that data to narrative analysis, while at the same time placing this process in its wider theoretical context. She works across the traditional quantitative/qualitative divide to set out the ways in which narrative researchers can uncover such issues as social change, causality and social identity. She also shows how the techniques and skills used by qualitative researchers can be deployed when doing quantitative research and, similarly, how qualitative researchers can sometimes profit from using quantitative skills and techniques. "This book provides both a fascinating and a challenging read. What sets this text apart from other books on research methodology and methods is that it does not focus exclusively on either quantitative or qualitative research approaches, but rather attempts to bridge the divide. The book should be compulsory reading not only for those aspiring to undertake narrative research and those students undertaking higher degree research courses, but also for those more experienced researches wishing to explore contemporary issues in research methods and methodology. As a recent recruit to a lecturer-practitioner post with little recnt experience in the subject area covered by this book, i found it met my needs very well. I would certainly recomment this book for purchase." Dr Andrew Pettipher, University of Nottingham, UK.
