Interpretation group method in the Dubrovnik tradition

Hollway, Wendy and Volmerg, Birgit (2010). Interpretation group method in the Dubrovnik tradition. International Research Group for Psycho-Societal Analysis.


The interpretation group method was developed for use in analysing qualitative empirical textual data. Most often it is used to analyse transcripts derived from research interviews with individuals and groups. The availability of different perspectives through the group members provides a form of triangulation with the text, enabling a dynamic and creative learning process. The following account is divided into three parts.

1. The generic method in its simple five-step form
2. An elaboration in Lorenzerian style, which involves a distinction between manifest and latent meanings in the text and an orientation to scenic understanding as a way of approaching a psycho-societal analysis.
