Summary

Thought-provoking, pertinent and engaging, this great new book provides an overview of the process of doing 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 and is divided into three sections that reflect the main issues facing researchers in this area: - Part I introduces the main elements of doing research with children, including the process of getting ethical approval for sensitive research topics. - Part III 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 on the entire research process 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.
