Product description

From the Back Cover

'The book is an excellent reference for Undergraduate Students’ Gina Z. Koutsopoulou, University of Leeds


‘The language is straightforward and the examples are clearly explained. I have no doubt that it will suit UG students as well as those with a slightly more developed depth of understanding.’  Jane Montague, University of Derby


Now in its third edition, Dennis Howitt’s Introduction to Qualitative Methods in Psychology is better than ever. This trusted and valuable student resources provides clear explanations and examples that take the reader through qualitative research from data collection to analysis. It also features dedicated sections offering guidance on ethics, quality and report writing. Methods are broken down to give step-by-step practical advice and guidance, ensuring that students can understand the theory and carry out their own research. All of this is achieved while providing a thorough theoretical and historical context for the qualitative methods.


This edition includes new chapters on Foucauldian and Social Constructionist Discourse Analysis and new and improved examples of qualitative reports, with commentary from the author, to give students a clear idea what and what no to do when writing up their own reports.


This comprehensive text has been thoroughly updated to bring the latest research and thinking into focus.
