Sailing between Scylla and Charybdis: Incorporating Qualitative Approaches into Child Psychotherapy Research
Midgley, Nicholas
Journal of Child Psychotherapy, v30 n1 p89-111 2004
Starting from the acknowledged gap between research and practice in child psychotherapy, this paper offers an historical perspective on the relation between these two activities, and suggests that qualitative approaches to research may offer new ways of bringing them together. After introducing the fundamental concepts of qualitative analysis, three areas where qualitative forms of research may be useful to child psychotherapists are explored: relevant but non-psychotherapy research; accounts of therapy research; and therapy process research. Examples of all of these types of research are presented, and some of the challenges to incorporating qualitative approaches into child psychotherapy research are discussed. (Contains 1 figure and 3 notes.)
