Frequently I'm asked how therapists and researchers can get involved in activism. These are just a few resources to get started!

Qualitative research is an art and science,
however, in many doctoral and masters programs
there is little focus on the development of qualitative researchers. Still many students choose qualitative
methodologies to complete dissertations and theses. The result is qualitative scholarship thin in reporting, reliant on simple phrases such as "themes emerged," or a "qualitative approach was employed," leaving potentially rich data sets unexplored and important questions thinly answered. There is even less focus on the power of qualitative research to deconstruct inequalities and work to bending the arc of justice. These challenges are why I engage in teaching, producing, and consulting on qualitative methodologies. If you have questions about working together please contact me, and I'll be happy to answer any questions you have.
Working with me, can include:
Assisting in the development of a solid research question and identifying the appropriate methodology
Informing researchers on developing and following an analytic plan
Connecting codes to themes, and substantiating claims
Working with theory, and linking findings, analysis, and discussion back to theory
