SHEILA MCNAMEE-DVD-SOCIAL CONSTRUCTIONIS IDEAS ABOUT RESEARCH

95.00

The dilemma that social constructionists face when we think that traditional researchers are “doing the real work” is addressed. Looking at research through the metaphor of “conversation” is the basis for her description of how research is socially constructed. Using ADHD as an example, she demonstrates the multiple descriptions that those who are involved embrace as the stories about ADHD. Who do we interview? Who do we observe? Who do we choose not to interview? Issues of validity and reliability are discussed as she describes the different kinds of conversation that are traditional and social constructionist research.
