Five Ways of Doing Qualitative Analysis : Phenomenological Psychology, Grounded Theory, Discourse Analysis, Narrative Research, and Intuitive Inquiry, Paperback / softback Book

Five Ways of Doing Qualitative Analysis : Phenomenological Psychology, Grounded Theory, Discourse Analysis, Narrative Research, and Intuitive Inquiry Paperback / softback

Description

This unique text provides a broad introduction to qualitative analysis together with concrete demonstrations and comparisons of five major approaches.

Leading scholars apply their respective analytic lenses to a narrative account and interview featuring "Teresa," a young opera singer who experienced a career-changing illness.

The resulting analyses vividly exemplify what each approach looks like in action.

The researchers then probe the similarities and differences among their approaches; their distinctive purposes and strengths; the role, style, and subjectivity of the individual researcher; and the scientific and ethical complexities of conducting qualitative research.

Also included are the research participant's responses to each analysis of her experience.

A narrative account from another research participant, "Gail," can be used by readers to practice the kinds of analysis explored in the book.
