Practical Research with Children, Paperback / softback Book

Practical Research with Children Paperback / softback

Edited by Jess Prior, Jo (Kingston University, UK) Van Herwegen

Part of the Research Methods in Developmental Psychology: A Handbook Series series

Paperback / softback


Practical Research with Children is designed to help the reader understand techniques for research with children, based on real world experience.

The book describes a wide range of research methods, focusing equally on quantitative and qualitative approaches, and considers how different methods can be integrated.

It highlights the benefits and challenges of each method and gives emphasis to best practice, with expert guidance on how to avoid potential pitfalls in order to obtain valuable insights into how children develop. The volume includes fifteen chapters arranged over three sections.

Each chapter explores a particular method, or combination of methods, and discusses both theoretical and practical issues, using a diversity of domains, including different ages, cultures, populations and settings.

Uniquely, the book includes newer methods (such as eye tracking and digital technologies) alongside well-established behavioural methods which are used for research with children.

With contributions from internationally renowned researchers and practitioners from a range of disciplines, the book will be indispensable reading for a wide audience, including for students in psychology, education and nursing undertaking research projects with children, and also for anyone looking to understand the research behind current theories in child development.
