Using interview recordings (video and audio, available to readers on-line), alongside worked examples of different ways to analyse the same dataset, the book and the interview data together provide an invaluable resource for anybody interested in either learning or teaching qualitative methods in psychology.

Doing Qualitative Research in Psychology offers clear and useful descriptions and explanations of how and why research questions are formulated and the importance of selecting appropriate methods for investigations, with a focus on semi-structured interviewing (as used in the on-line data).

The book describes four specific qualitative methods, explaining in a 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. It also describes precisely how research reports using qualitative methods are written, in line with the appropriate conventions of report writing in psychology.
