9780803944626: Qualitative Methods in Family Research

Family phenomena are complex, subjective and private, and their study requires methods and perspectives tailored to this complexity. In response to the rapidly growing interest in this field, the contributors to this volume examine the unique contribution that qualitative research can make to the study of families. Through both methodological discussions and illustrative cases from a variety of family settings, this book provides the crucial information needed to conduct, or learn about, qualitative family research.

About the Author:

Kerry J. Daly (Ph.D., Sociology, McMaster University) is a full professor in the Department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition at the University of Guelph.  In over a decade of teaching a graduate course on qualitative methods, he has had students from his own interdisciplinary department as well as students from Psychology, Sociology, Nursing and Nutrition, thus sensitizing him to the many different values and procedures that exist across the varied audiences and disciplines that contribute to family studies.  With Jane Gilgun and Gerald Handel, he co-edited the book "Qualitative Methods in Family Research" (Sage 1992), and he has authored a number of articles focusing on qualitative methodology in journals such as "Qualitative Inquiry," "The Journal of Contemporary Ethnography," "Symbolic Interaction," and "Journal of Marriage & Family."  He co-authored the chapter on qualitative research methods in Leon Kuczynski's "Handbook of Dynamics in Parent-Child Relations (Sage 2003).  He was recipient of the Anselm Strauss Award for the best qualitative research article in 2001.  He was a member of the Steering Committee for the Qualitative Family Research Network, then Chair for 3 years and served for a period as Editor of the Qualitative Family Research newsletter.  His teaching, research, and professional background combine to offer the perfect combination for undertaking this new text.
