Research output: Book/ReportBook

81 Scopus citations


This book provides qualitative researchers with a guide to inquiry that learns from, with and about children.� From fieldwork done during participant observation, to focus groups and depth interviews, to the use of artwork, photography, play and metaphors, viable methods to foreground children's views are featured. The tools for child-centered research and its interpretation are drawn from both academic and applied qualitative inquiry, providing broad instruction across a range of kid-attuned approaches. The book takes stock of a blossoming world-wide child-centered research movement, and its promise of better grasping children's lives. Child-focused inquiry, the book insists, has relevance to both academic theory and practical application, including public policy.
