Consensual Qualitative Research

Author: Clara E. Hill
Publisher: Amer Psychological Assn
ISBN: 1433810077
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Psychology

This lively and practical text presents a fresh and comprehensive approach to conducting consensual qualitative research (CQR). CQR is an inductive method that is characterized by open-ended interview questions, small samples, a reliance on words over numbers, the importance of context, an integration of multiple viewpoints, and consensus of the research team. It is especially well-suited to research that requires rich descriptions of inner experiences, attitudes, and convictions. Written to help researchers navigate their way through qualitative techniques and methodology, leading expert Clara E. Hill and her associates provide readers with step-by-step practical guidance during each stage of the research process. Readers learn about adaptive ways of designing studies; collecting, coding, and analyzing data; and reporting findings. Key aspects of the researcher's craft are addressed, such as establishing the research team, recruiting and interviewing participants, adhering to ethical standards, raising cultural awareness, auditing within case analyses and cross analyses, and writing up the study. Intended as a user-friendly manual for graduate-level research courses and beyond, the text will be a valuable resource for both budding and experienced qualitative researchers for many years to come.

This book examines developments in qualitative psychotherapeutic research. It focuses on different methods and aspects of clinical practice. These range from the experiences of service users and clinicians, examining in detail different aspects of how therapy gets done in practice, to critiquing the politics and ideologies of psychotherapy practice. It aims to reflect the diversity that characterises this developing field and to represent practice-based research carried out in different clinical settings, from different perspectives and in different sociocultural contexts. The wide range of research projects presented arise from a network of clinicians and psychotherapy researchers who have established an international transdisciplinary forum for dedicated qualitative research on a range of topics in the field of mental health, using a variety of methodologies and theoretical approaches. In the spirit of dialogue, this book further provides chapters written by key practitioners in the field of qualitative research in mental health discussing these contributions.

Disclosure and Concealment in Psychotherapy

Author: Sarah Knox
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781351857871
Release Date: 2018-10-11
Genre: Psychology

Although clients disclose many of their concerns to therapists, they often choose to conceal some of their concerns as well. Equally, therapists occasionally reveal something of themselves to clients via therapist self-disclosure, but typically keep the focus on clients. Such disclosure, whether by clients or therapists, is seldom easy, and is instead often fraught with questions as to what, how much, and why to disclose, as well as concerns regarding the consequences of disclosure. Clearly, disclosure (or the lack thereof) is an important phenomenon of the therapy endeavour. The chapters included in this book examine various aspects of the disclosure and concealment phenomena, whether from client or therapist perspective. Contributions examine the relationship of therapist self-disclosure to alliance and outcome; the phenomenon of therapist self-disclosure in psychodynamic therapy; client concealment and disclosure of secrets in therapy; young adults’ disclosures in psychotherapy and on Facebook; and lying in psychotherapy. Each offers intriguing insights into the disclosure, or lack of disclosure, in psychotherapy, from the therapist or client perspective. This book was originally published as a special issue of Counselling Psychology Quarterly.

Genre: Grounded theory

Studierende und Forscher verschiedener Disziplinen, die am Entwickeln einer Theorie interessiert sind, stellen sich nach der Datenerhebung oft die Frage: Wie komme ich zu einer Theorie, die sich auf die empirische Realität gründet? Die Autoren beantworten diese und andere Fragen, die sich bei der qualitativen Interpretation von Daten ergeben. Auf klare und einfache Art geschrieben vermittelt das Buch Schritt für Schritt die grundlegenden Kenntnisse und Verfahrensweisen der "grounded theory" (datenbasierte Theorie), so daß es besonders für Personen interessant ist, die sich zum ersten Mal mit der Theorienbildung anhand qualitativer Datenanalyse beschäftigen. Das Buch gliedert sich in drei Teile. Teil I bietet einen Überblick über die Denkweise, die der "grounded theory" zugrunde liegt. Teil II stellt die speziellen Techniken und Verfahrensweisen genau dar, wie z.B. verschiedene Kodierungsarten. In Teil III werden zusätzliche Verfahrensweisen erklärt und Evaluationskriterien genannt.

Zur Psychologie des produktiven Denkens

Author: Karl Duncker
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783642498558
Release Date: 2013-03-09
Genre: Psychology

Das produktive Denken dort zu studieren, wo - weithin kenntlic- produktiv gedacht wurde, ist gewiß verlockend, und ohne Zweifel könnten aus biographischem Material wichtige Aufschlüsse über die Genese produktiver Gedanken gewonnen werden. Aber obschon das Gewitter das erhabenste Beispiel elektrischer Entladung ist, zur Er forschung ihrer Gesetzmäßigkeiten sind die kleinen Funken im Laboratorium tauglicher. Das Komplizierte, schwer Zugängliche an einfachen, "handlichen" Formen zu studieren, ist die Methode der experimentellen Wissenschaft; bei dieser Vereinfachung gerade das Wesentliche draußen zu lassen, ihre notorische Gefahr. Die experi mentelle Psychologie ist dieser Gefahr vor allen anderen Wissenschaften ausgesetzt. Möge es mir gelungen sein, den Gegenstand zu vereinfachen, ohne ihn versimpelnd zu entstellen. Die Gebietsbeschränkung des Untersuchungsmaterials auf praktisch technische und mathematische Denkaufgaben ist mir durchaus bewußt. Auch sie geschah aus Gründen leichterer Zugänglichkeit, Experimentier barkeit. Ich glaube jedoch - und der Leser dürfte (nach der Lektüre) hierin mit mir einig sein -, daß wesentliche Züge der Lösungsfindung vom speziellen Denkmaterial unabhängig sind. Aber noch für eine andere Beschränkung bin ich dem Leser Rechenschaft schuldig. Es wurde bei den denkpsychologischen Analysen bewußt abgesehen von allen Sachverhalten, die für das Problem des Findens, des 8V(!ÜJK8lV, nicht unmittelbare Bedeutung haben - mögen sie auch noch so wesentlich zum vollen psychologischen Bestand eines Findungsprozesses gehören.

Das unbeschriebene Blatt

Author: Steven Pinker
Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag
ISBN: 9783104903903
Release Date: 2017-11-23
Genre: Social Science

Mit einem aktuellen Vorwort zur Neuausgabe! Auf John Locke geht die Vorstellung zurück, der Mensch sei ein leeres Blatt, auf dem im Verlauf des Lebens die persönlichen Erfahrungen eingetragen werden. In seinem mittlerweile klassischen Buch »Das unbeschriebene Blatt. Die moderne Leugnung der menschlichen Natur« bezieht Bestseller-Autor Steven Pinker ganz die Gegenposition: Mit Witz, Brillanz und Gelehrsamkeit analysiert er die Geschichte dieser Idee und zeigt, wie falsch sie ist – mit allen kruden Auswirkungen auf Vorstellungen von Sexualität, Rasse, Kindererziehung, Intelligenz usw. Die Rolle der Gene wird systematisch unterschätzt; aber das bedeutet nicht, dass wir ihnen völlig ausgeliefert sind. Pinker zeigt nämlich auch, wie befreiend diese Sichtweise sein kann. Ein unterhaltsames und anschauliches Buch zur Natur des Menschen, ein echter Lesegenuss.
