Prompted by the current explosion of interest in qualitative psychology, this book is written in a very accessible manner and is primarily intended as a textbook for undergraduates and postgraduates, though it will also be useful to more advanced researchers. Qualitative Psychology covers all of the main qualitative approaches now used in psychology and each chapter offers the reader a step by step guide to carrying out research using that particular method with plenty of pedagogical advice. The contributors are all renowned international experts - many of them key figures in either the inception or development of their chosen method. Each of the authors has extensive experience using, teaching and writing about their approach. Qualitative Psychology includes an early chapter offering an historical context to the development of qualitative psychology. Qualitative Psychology will be a prerequisite for all psychology students taking research methods, either undergraduate or postgraduate, given that it assumes no prior experience or knowledge.
