Researching with Children and Young People
Research Design, Methods and Analysis

January 2009 | 248 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Researching with Children and Young People covers every stage of the process of doing a research project, from research design and data collection, through to analysis, dissemination, and feedback. Providing an advanced discussion of current debates and methods in childhood research, the book is essential reading for anyone undertaking consultation, research, and evaluation activities with children and young people.

The book is structured around five core areas covering:
  • Introduction to research with children and young people
  • Ethics
  • Data collection and analysis
  • Involving children and young people
  • Dissemination and engagement
These chapters are interspersed with case studies describing the methods used in eleven different research projects involving children and young people. Written by both academics and practitioners, the case studies cover a wide variety of methods, settings, and approaches.

Packed with activities, discussion questions, top tips, research tools, useful suggestions, and practical advice, this text will appeal to practitioners, graduate students, and researchers in education, sociology, human geography, social policy, social work, and nursing.

I felt that this text, a long with the text editted by Robb, was well contructed and met a great deal of the needs of my students studying on this module as it addressed relevant issues in relation to today's young people as well as informing those who work within that field. Because of this this is one of two books that I am recommending as essential reading for my students.
