  Mixing Methods in Psychology The acceptance of qualitative research methods in psychology has led to a split between qualitative and quantitative methods and has raised questions about how best to assess the validity of research practice. While the two approaches havetraditionally been seen as competing paradigms, more recently, researchers have begun to argue that the divide is artificial.  Mixing Methods in Psychology looks in detail at the problems involved inattempting to reconcile qualitative and quantitative methods both within andacross subjects. All angles of the debate are discussed, covering areas as diverseas health, education, social, clinical and economic psychology. The contributors,who are some of the leading figures in the field, present theoretical andmethodological guidance as well as practical examples of how quantitative andqualitative methods can be fruitfully combined. By aiming to bridge the gap between the two methods, this book reveals how each can inform the other to produce more accurate theories and models of human behaviour.This ground-breaking text will be essential reading for students andresearchers wishing to combine methods, or for anyone who simply wants togain a more thorough understanding of the debate.
