On this one-day course, experienced researchers from psychosocial studies will teach you how they use psychosocial and psychoanalytic ideas and methodologies to conduct their research. Based on examples from their own research, you will learn in what way psychosocial approaches and psychoanalysis can help you to refine your data gathering approach, and deepen your understanding of the data. During the morning session by professor Roseneil, the biographical-narrative interpretive method will be discussed as an approach to link the psychic and the social, micro and macro, personal and political. The aim of the afternoon session by professor Froggett will be to address theoretical and practical aspects of visual methodologies from a psychosocial perspective, in particular the use of visualisation and association. The first half will involve a visual matrix workshop and discussion as an experiential introduction to this group based associative method. The second half will explore underlying theory and applications and consider the potentials of some other visual methods.
