Abstract

What do children understand about their worlds? Why do young people behave in certain ways?

Research is the key to answering these and many other questions you may have in the course of your work or study. As an introduction to research, this book helps you understand how research is designed and carried out, as well as the particular practical and ethical issues involved in researching with children and young people.

A key feature of the book is the examples of “real research” which have been selected to show...

• Different methods of collecting data in action
• Challenges that arise at various stages of the research process
• How findings are used to influence policy and practice.
