DAY 1 - Monday, 16th March 2020

MORNING 

Keynote Presentation by Prof. William B. Stiles

 

Overview – What is the Purpose of Research?

“I want to distinguish four alternative research purposes: theory-building, fact-gathering, product- testing, and enriching.  To repeat, these are purposes, not methods. You can use any research method for any of these purposes. These four are wholly different projects, trying to accomplish different things. These purposes have been called by various names, but I think you'll recognize the categories. “

DAY 2 - Tuesday, 17th March 2020

MORNING

Round Table Discussion led by Dr. Stephen Goss

 

 

Overview – The Limitations and Uses of Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis

 “It is a powerful and important development in that it explicitly brings into qualitative analysis the interpretative perspective of the researcher. It thereby represents an important step forward in research methodology by addressing a widely recognised difficulty with those phenomenological methods that seek to "bracket off" the researcher's assumptions and to minimise the impact of their perspective. This round table discussion will consider some of the pros and cons of the development and spread of IPA and will seek to bring an appreciatively critical lens to its use in studies that seek to further the development of counselling and psychotherapy."
