"The author draws from the critical ethnography she conducted to provide concrete examples of the research process including issues related to data analysis and respectful representation. A unique feature of the book is the emphasis on advisement and the student-advisor relationship that is embedded in chapter discussions. The author addresses the complexities of the relationships that develop between students and advisors over time, emphasizing the role students can play in ensuring the relationship is productive from the beginning to the completion of their research journey. At the conclusion of each chapter there is an annotated bibliography of additional sources (e.g., articles, theses and dissertations) that provide a discussion, and/or examples of research, related to the issues addressed in the chapter. The text includes a significant amount of Canadian context within the text itself and as part of the annotated bibliographies. This qualitative research text is situated within a critical, feminist postmodern framework. The book has three central organizing themes shaping the discussion of doing critical qualitative research (critical reflexivity, the distance dynamic, respectful research praxis). The role power, privilege and passion play in decisions related to what gets researched, who is positioned as researcher or participant and how data are collected, analyzed represented and publicized is embedded in the chapter discussions. The text is written for student researchers, individuals who teach and advise students, instructors of qualitative research courses in social sciences, health and education and community members interested in qualitative methods and conducting research."--

This book explores the distinctive theoretical and methodological features associated with conducting ethical and respectful research with young families, along with its unique considerations and challenges. With parents and young children understood to be both major players and ‘first educators’ in supporting childhood health, development and learning, this book examines how opportunities for research can be conceptualised within this privileged space. This volume embraces an interdisciplinary approach to this research, examining topics such as researcher identity and positioning, issues of consent, notions of power and relationships with families, methods for collecting data and frameworks for making sense of that data. Rather than providing concrete methods of practices and tools, this book will help raise the consciousness of researchers who are engaged in research with these young families. It is sure to appeal to students and scholars of education and early childhood development, as well as those concerned with conducting research ethically and respectfully.

The most important job you will ever have is being a parent. Parents usually raise their children the way they were parented, no matter how good or bad their experience. People laugh when they say, Babies dont come with an instruction manual. The Respectful Parent: A Manual for Moms and Dads may be the closest book to that much needed manual. This book is for parents whose normal children are driving them up the wall, and parents who want to improve their parenting skills while things are still going well. The Respectful Parent is written in a personal style by an author, who has over 55 years of clinical experience working with families and individuals of all ages. Dr. Deutch believes that respect between parent and child, along with a toolbox of great common sense techniques, is the key to having a cooperative, happy and productive family. Spanking, yelling, and threats may work on your child in the immediate situation, but scientific research shows that in the long term, they have many negative and sometimes catastrophic side effects. The Respectful Parent teaches how to use positive and democratic ways to nurture children. These ideas are based on the commonsensical philosophy of Doctors Alfred Adler and Rudolph Dreikurs. Learn to use the power of encouragement, the family council, individual special time, natural and logical consequences, and simple communication techniques. Become your childs consultant rather than boss. Raise your childs self-esteem, courage, mental health, and even his or her I.Q.

Offering immensely practical advice, Basics of Qualitative Research, Fourth Edition presents methods that enable researchers to analyze, interpret, and make sense of their data, and ultimately build theory from it. Authors Juliet Corbin and Anselm Strauss (late of the University of San Francisco and co-creator of grounded theory) walk readers step-by-step through the research process—from the formation of the research question through several approaches to coding, analysis, and reporting. Packed with definitions and illustrative examples, this highly accessible book concludes with chapters that present criteria for evaluating a study, as well as responses to common questions posed by students of qualitative research. New end-of-chapter “Insider Insights” contributed by qualitative researchers give readers a sense of what it’s like to work in the field. Significantly revised, this Fourth Edition remains a landmark volume in the study of qualitative methods.

Participatory Research in Palliative Care

Participatory research is a relatively new method of researching practice especially within palliative care. It differs from other methodologies in that there is an expectation of action within the research process. The values that underpin participatory research are collaboration, empowerment, and reflection. In the current climate of collaboration and working with people in healthcare, participatory research methods are gaining increasing interest when there is a desire to bring about change. Organisational change is becoming an important focus as we look at ways of not only reducing costs but at the same time improving quality of care. While palliative care puts the patient and family at the centre, Participatory Research in Palliative Care discusses a new research methodology that puts practitioners at the heart of the research process as collaborators who work together with researchers to resolve problems in practice. Divided into three sections, it provides theoretical groundings of action research, a greater focus on exemplars from studies within palliative care, and discusses prominent issues when using such a methodology. All three sections are illustrated by an action research study undertaken by the author within a palliative care setting. Participatory Research in Palliative Care is written by international, multi-disciplinary authors who explore a collaborative approach to embark on research. It will appeal to health and social care professionals, academics undertaking research within palliative care, and the management of organisations where people with end of life care needs are cared for, including long-term care homes.

This book is about the practices and experiences of doing contemporary research in the social sciences and in related professions. Written in personal and easy-to-read English, it is for people beginning to do research or wanting to change the ways they research and write. Jeanette Rhedding-Jones explains different ways of doing research, as these link to critical issues researchers decide take up, and to what drives research inquiries. With personal examples and a conversational style, she deals with both the difficult matters of doing theorised research and the politics of getting published. The chapters are about research and self, professions, disciplines, theory, inquiry, methodology, ethics, gender, ethnic diversity and post-modernity. The last two chapters are about research writing and publishing. This book will be a key text for research methodology courses in the social sciences and the professions. As a companion text to more traditionally written books, 'What is Research?' opens doors for readers needing new directions.
