In this one-day course, experienced clinician-researchers will teach you a number of contemporary research approaches in the field of clinical psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. Research in clinical contexts is characterised by a number of unique features, both at the level of methodology and ethics. We will address the issues of collecting, processing and analysing data in clinical contexts. The course will focus on new methodologies that are developed in order to capture the complexity of the clinical situation within a reliable and valid research framework. Conversation analysis is a method developed to study patterns in speech. It is ideally suited to study details of interactions, for instance between psychotherapist and patient. Q-methodology is a promising technique to capture attitudes in respondents, by letting them sort and rank a series of statements. Since this technique combines qualitative and quantitative research features, it allows more customized data collection. The course will give you an insight in the use of Conversation analysis, Q methodology, and clinical research in general.
This is the Centre’s flagship course on advanced research methods in psychoanalysis. It is aimed primarily at PhD students in Psychoanalytic and Psychosocial Studies but will also be useful to those from Psychology, HHS, and the Social Sciences. Feedback from previous years was overwhelmingly positive: ‘The course was generally fantastic’ (HHS), ‘Extremely useful and there were a lot of aspects I had not expected to be covered’ (CPS student), ‘Fantastic resources’ (outside student).
