Additional Book Details

`Strongly recommended as it provides a very useful overview of a range of methods, mainly textual, for exploring children′s experiences. These accounts are placed well in the broader conceptual frameworks concerning both methodologies and ethical considerations′ - Educational Review

How should the researcher approach the sensitive subject of the child? What are the ethical issues involved in researching children′s experiences? In essays written by a collection of key, international authors, Researching Children′s Experience addresses these questions, and examines up-to-date methodological and conceptual approaches to researching children. This book is a practical, comprehensive and interdisciplinary guide for advanced students and researchers, exploring a range of studies, and the theoretical and ethical motivations behind them.

The book is divided into three coherent sections:

- Conceptual, methodological and ethical issues in researching children′s experiences.

- Methods for conducting research with children.

- The generation and analysis of text.

Researching Children′s Experience provides examples of how researchers from a variety of social science perspectives have set about carrying out research into children′s experience. Useful to students embarking on a research project, and to experienced researchers wishing to explore new methods, Greene and Hogan′s book is an essential addition to anyone doing research on children. It will be especially useful to those in developmental psychology, education, nursing and other disciplines interested in studying children′s experience.
