Overview

Thought-provoking, pertinent and engaging, this book provides an overview of every aspect of carrying out research with children. It is unique in its particular focus on vulnerable groups of children such as those with mental-health problems, physical health problems and learning disabilities, along with young offenders and looked after children.

The book helpfully addresses each stage of the research process:

-Part I introduces the main elements of doing research with children, including seeking ethical approval for sensitive research topics.

-Part II guides the reader through the initial stages of the research project including recruitment issues and communicating with gatekeepers.

-Part III outlines the data collection, data analysis, writing up and dissemination stages of research and covers both quantitative and qualitative methods.

Filled with practical advice and useful activities for each chapter, this book is an essential resource for any student, academic or professional working with, or doing research with, children.

Editorial Reviews

The Qualitative Report - Dudu Jankie
Michelle O’Reilly, Pablo Ronzoni and Nisha Dogra contribute significantly to what it means to conduct research that privileges the interests and concerns of diverse children. They demonstrate a clear understanding of the key issues involved in conducting research with children. As a result, they produce a detailed, practice-oriented book that is indeed beneficial to "researchers who are new to research with children" (p. xii) and which at the same time reminds experienced researchers to conduct research with children in ways that value their lives and social situations.
From the Publisher
This is an excellent resource for all those interested in undertaking research with children and young people in a variety of contexts. It will be particularly valuable for students and practitioners working with children in education, health, social work and in communities, as it provides valuable practical advice, with examples from a range of professional contexts. The authors have written an exceptional step-by-step guide, which supports the reader from the design stage to dissemination, and is packed with ideas on how best to engage children of all ages in research and how to be respectful of their views and rights in the process. An invaluable resource for students, practitioners and others interested in researching children's views in a respectful manner.
