This book is designed as a practical guide for students that is also grounded in the latest developments in theory in psychology. Readers are introduced to theoretical approaches to ethnography, interviewing, narrative, discourse and psychoanalysis, with each chapter on these approaches including worked examples clearly structured around methodological stages. A case is made for new practical procedures that encourage students to question the limits of mainstream psychological research methods.

Resource links guide students to theoretical debates and to ways of making these debates relevant to a psychology genuinely concerned with critical reflection and social change. The book includes numerous boxes that clearly outline: key issues in the development, application and assessment of qualitative research methods; current debates and problems with particular qualitative methods taught in psychology; summaries of methodological stages and points to be aware of in the marking of practical reports in relation to specific methods; and, coverage of ethical issues, reflexivity and good report writing. "Qualitative Psychology" is essential reading for students of psychology and other related social sciences who want a polemical account that will also serve as a well-balanced and rigorous introduction to current debates in qualitative psychology.
