Researching Intimacy in Families introduces and invigorates understandings of intimacy and family relationships. It offers an incisive engagement with the sociology of intimacy and the methods needed to research families, children and personal life. Using original data the book opens out the theoretical debate on intimacy and illustrates the potential of qualitative mixed-methods in capturing the richness and complexity of family life. Jacqui Gabb brings to life methodology teaching through extensive illustrations of methods in the context of families and childhood research, including innovatory methods and approaches designed and piloted by the author.
