Could Involve Interviewing Individuals
The purpose of the assignment is for students to review a recent (within the past five years) qualitative study focused on a population or presenting problem of relevance to counseling psychology and of interest to the student. The chosen study must use individual, in-depth, qualitative interviewing as the method of data collection.
The first part will identify the study’s main research question or objective, the rationale provided for why the question or objective is important to address, the sampling methods used, sample description, the key findings, the study limitations and questions for future research.
The second part will propose a new study that would add to or build onto what the current study learned. This could involve interviewing individuals related to those in the study and/or adding a set of questions that were not asked in the original study. Describe how findings from the proposed new study could be useful for mental health counselors.
