Mixed Methodology in Group Research: Lessons Learned
Shannonhouse, Laura R.; Barden, Sejal M.; McDonald, C. Peeper
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v42 n1 p87-107 2017
Mixed methods research (MMR) is a useful paradigm for group work as it allows exploration of both participant outcomes and "how" or "why" such changes occur. Unfortunately, the group counseling literature is not replete with MMR studies. This article reviews the application of MMR to group contexts and summarizes the corpus of MMR on groups. Then, we synthesize lessons learned from planning, conducting, and analyzing 3 of our own mixed methods group studies that utilize consensual qualitative research. Practical guidance is presented as insights researchers may consider when they attempt to conduct meaningful and feasible MMR in a group setting.
