Description - Rethinking Methods in Psychology by Jonathan A. Smith
The widespread rejection of conventional theory and method has led to the evolution of different ways to gather and analyze psychological data. This text provides a guide to key effective methods, which contain a range of qualitative approaches, for example, semi-structured interviews, grounded theory, and discourse analysis. A revision of quantitative methods to suit the changing picture of contemporary psychological research is presented alongside. A number of chapters are concerned with research as a dynamic interactive process and should be useful reading for those interested in conducting research in psychology.
