This unique text provides a comprehensive framework for creating, managing, and interpreting qualitative research studies that yield valid and useful information. Examples of studies from a wide range of disciplines illustrate the strengths, limitations, and applications of the primary qualitative methods: in-depth interviews, focus group discussions, ethnography, content analysis, and case study and narrative research. Following a consistent format, chapters show students and researchers how to implement each method within a paradigm-neutral and flexible Total Quality Framework (TQF) comprising four interrelated components: Credibility, Analyzability, Transparency, and Usefulness. Unlike other texts that relegate quality issues to one or two chapters, detailed discussions of such crucial topics as construct validity, interresearcher reliability, researcher bias, and verification strategies are featured throughout. The book also addresses applications of the TQF to the writing, review, and evaluation of qualitative research proposals and manuscripts. Pedagogical Features *Summary tables that highlight important content, such as the application of a method to vulnerable or hard-to-reach populations. *Case studies that illustrate TQF standards in practice for each method. *Guidelines for effective documentation (via thick descriptions) of each type of study. *End-of-chapter discussion topics, exercises, and suggested further reading and Web resources. *Chapters open with a preview and close with a bulleted summary of key ideas. *Extensive glossary.

Understanding and Working with Substance Misusers explores the complex nature of addiction and the challenges involved in responding effectively through policy and practice. It examines the biopyschosocial elements of addiction to substances (including alcohol) and, draws together key research findings from these fields to present a new framework for integrating theory and practice. The book argues that the best way to understand addictions is as examples of "complex self organising systems", which comprise many interacting component parts. In so doing, it addresses the problem of service users presenting with multiple needs (including poly drug use, mental health problems, criminal behaviour, unemployment and relationship difficulties) and the challenges that this poses for policy makers, services commissioners and practitioners alike. This book fills the need for a text which makes the complex issues surrounding substance misuse accessible to both students and practitioners. As such, it fosters a multidisciplinary and critically reflective approach to policy and practice.

In early 2010 the Sunday Times and makers of the Dispatches television programme arranged for a number of Members of Parliament each to meet an undercover reporter. The MPs, each of whom were standing down in the forthcoming General Election, were told that the meetings were with a representative of a US communications company and that they were being considered for a remunerated post on a UK board or for consultancy work. The company was fictitious. Records of the meetings were subsequently used in articles and in a broadcast which suggested that the conduct of some of the Members concerned had been contrary to the rules of the House. The Commissioner accepted complaints against five members (Stephen Byers, Patricia Hewitt, Geoff Hoon, Richard Caborn and Adam Ingram) and one self-referral (Sir John Butterfill). The reports scope does not include the conduct of those duping the former Members nor whether the Members should have fallen for the subterfuge. It was concluded that Sir John Butterfill, Patricia Hewitt and Adam Ingram did not breach the Code or rules and allegations against them were not upheld. Allegations against Stephen Byers, Geoff Hoon and Richard Caborn were upheld and were recommended to have their Parliamentary photopasses suspended for two years, five years and six months respectively. Geoff Hoon and Richard Caborn were also asked to apologise to the House. Mr Byers had already done so.
