Employing examples of qualitative research from across the different sub-disciplines of psychology, a range of experts in a broad spread of methods show how and why these are used in a wide variety of settings. With its distinctive applied and pragmatic focus, this book will appeal to those with an interest in qualitative methods across the spectrum of psychology and beyond

The use of qualitative research methods in psychology has become increasingly popular in recent years, but issues related to the conduct of qualitative psychological research in real-world settings are often glossed over in textbooks and classroom teaching.
