This companion offers a better-informed understanding of research methods, exploring key topics such as ethics, reproducibility, reliability and validity, and research design through a feminist lens. The ethics of research relationships are explored, alongside issues to do with prejudices and biases implicated in psychology’s treatment of women.
Ultimately, this book aims to develop your critical and analytical skills by encouraging a questioning approach to understanding how psychological knowledge is produced, and by offering alternative, feminist-informed approaches to framing research questions, adopting data collection techniques, and analysing and interpreting data.
