About this product
- DescriptionWith the changing demographic landscape of American society, there has been a steady increase in studies and research on diverse populations and groups. However, it is t uncommon for these studies to be affected by methodological problems, including but t limited to the problems of overgeneralization, misuse of measurements, misinterpretation of findings, and the interpretation of differences t as diversity but as deficiencies. Simply put, the application of conventional research strategies with a different population does t qualify a study as culturally competent research. This pocket guide adopts ethgraphy as a meta-framework for conducting culturally competent research. This suggests the following components of culturally competent research: (1) a collaborative social relationship with the study group and community, (2) use of firsthand, long-term participant observation, (3) use of self as research instrument, (4) researcher as learner, (5) a contextual view of phemena, (6) a holistic perspective, (7) an interactive-reactive research process, (8) a cross-cultural frame of reference, and (9) a spirit of discovery. Each phase of research is described and incorporated throughout the process, from framing and designing the study; to data collection, management, and analysis; to final analysis and report writing; and to dissemination to a variety of audiences. With a practical, step-by-step approach, this book provides social work researchers, doctoral students, and professionals with a model for conducting culturally competent research with and close to the lived experience of diverse populations and groups.
