Phenomenological Research Methods
Phenomenology has long served as a research model for many psychologists and other social science scholars and professionals. Yet descriptions of how to do phenomenological research are few. In this brief volume, Clark Moustakas clearly explains the theoretical underpinnings of phenomenology, based on the work of Husserl and others, and takes the reader step-by-step through the process of conducting a phenomenological study. His concise guide also provides numerous extended examples of successful phenomenological studies from a variety of fields including therapy, health care, victimology, psychology, and gender studies. It also includes form letters and other research tools to use in designing and conducting a study. Phenomenological Research Methods is an essential guidebook for scholars, students, and other researchers in a wide variety of fields that use phenomenological research methods.
