Constructivist Approaches and Research Methods
This book provides a comprehensive overview of personal construct psychology (PCP) that will help researchers understand the why's, what's and how's of conducting a rigorous constructivist research project.
From the theoretical underpinnings of constructivist approaches to the practical values of these techniques, these three expert authors explain how to conduct interpretative, constructivist research from inception to completion. Key topics include:
Understanding research philosophies and paradigms
Constructing and exploring personal realities
Establishing effective research procedures
Evaluating grids, mapping, narrative and other research methods
Managing the practicalities of fieldwork
Analysing and presenting data
With activities and procedural examples from a wide range of disciplines woven throughout the text and two special chapters featuring in-depth case studies from a variety of constructivist researchers, this book helps readers grasp the tools, designs, and opportunities of interpretative research.
An essential companion for both researchers and practitioners looking to understand people's values, attitudes, beliefs, perceptions, or motivations!
