This distinctive, nuanced book addresses the more complex theoretical issues embedded in the qualitative research paradigm. Adopting a reflective stance that emphasises the role of the researcher it carefully avoids a standardised `tick box' approach to methods. Throughout each chapter, theory is powerfully and persuasively interwoven as its impact on practical topics such as data management and safety in the field is discussed. O'Reilly and Kiyimba bring an authority and clarity to the debate, taking us beyond the mechanical notions of qualitative methods and standardised approaches to research. Instead, they focus on subjects like methodological integrity, perspective driven data collection and theoretically-led analysis. This will be an important resource for anyone looking to practically engage with advanced qualitative research methods.

About the Author

Dr Michelle O'Reilly is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Leicester, UK (the Greenwood Institute of Child Health) who also provides research support to practicing clinical professionals working for Leicestershire NHS Partnership Trust. Michelle's research interests are broadly in the areas of child mental health, sociology of health & illness, family therapy and qualitative methods. Michelle has published many papers and books in this area including, 'Research with children: Theory and practice (sage) and 'The Palgrave handbook of child mental health'. Dr Nikki Kiyimba is a Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader for the Msc in Therapeutic Practice for Psychological Trauma at Chester University UK, and also works as a Chartered Clinical Psychologist for Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Trust. Clinically, Nikki works with a range of clients presenting with severe and enduring psychological difficulties. Nikki's research interests are mainly in the areas of qualitative methods and therapeutic approaches. She is also interested in the impact of trauma and vicarious trauma. Grounded in a social constructionist epistemological perspective, she has a particular interest in qualitative research, and her analytic specialism is in using discursive approaches. Nikki has also recently co-authored the book 'Doing Mental Health Research with Children and Adolescents: A Guide to Qualitative Methods' (Sage).

Reviews

O'Reilly and Kiyimba's thorough and thoughtful book will be a great help to qualitative researchers looking for guidance in the 'why' of their research method. In navigating the reefs of theory that underlie empirical method, this book provides a welcome and valuable compass. -- Charles Antaki This invaluable book offers a wonderfully clear and accessible overview of the often confusing theories informing contemporary qualitative methods. It is also packed with valuable examples and case studies that illuminate the process, methods and application of qualitative research. -- Alexa Hepburn
