Holloway and Jefferson present a very interesting account of qualitative research which is useful for undergraduates and those undertaking further study.
A very accessible undergraduate and post graduate text for psycho social research
Excellent book and offers a new and interesting perspective to conducting research
Interesting book that redefined qualitative research as we know it. Recommended as a text for further reading for students writing 3rd year projects.
This is an interesting perspective, and one that is likely to offer the researcher a different perspective. DQRD has the potential to encourage qualitative researchers to 'think outside the box' which in turn will create new knowledge.
This is an interesting text that incorporates psychoanalytical techniques with classic interviewing styles. Good for 3rd year students progressing on to Mres
This book was extremely useful to provide a differing perspective specific to research methodology
This is recommended for our DMin students - professional doctorate of ministry. Most find themselves doing qualitative work and need to appreciate the variations in the methods.
An excellent resource describing the psychosocial approach to qualitative research. A very clear and useful description of how to use the psychosocial approach and what it adds to your understanding of the interview situation and the data gathered.
Useful for MA students at the Dissertation stage of the MA.
This is a good start when thinking about using this creative research methodology. I particularly like the clear structure of the book that guides you through the decision making that you need to follow to decide if this is the most appropriate method of data collection for your research project. I found the chapter on working with defended subjects as this was helpful to think about the unconscious process in interviews.
The first edition of 'Doing Qualitative Research Differently' was recommended to students on the social psychology module, particularly in relation to lectures focusing on psychosocial approaches. Having read this new edition, I will be asking the library to order copies for the next academic year as there are useful reflections on the earlier edition and direct responses to critiques levied against the FANI method; which I drew from extensively in the end of semester lectures.
Provides another way of looking at research for those for whom more traditional ways of viewing social science, and in particular issues in education, just doesn't provide the full answer.
Essential for those undertaking a major independent study or dissertation
This book seems really what I have ben looking for for this part of the UG curriculum.
Thank you for sending it to me
This book additionally addresses the narrative research and explores feminist approaches in relation to interviews. The rationale provided for avoidance of a ‘why’ question in qualitative research is clearly presented. The book covers the research arguments within the context of psychosocial research and gives examples of debates from research in the area, thus situating the book within a holistic framework approach.
This title is also available on SAGE Research Methods, the ultimate digital methods library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
