Review: Jörg Frommer & David Rennie (Eds.) (2001). Qualitative Psychotherapy Research: Methods and Methodology

Michael B. Buchholz


The authors of the volume favour qualitative research in psychotherapy. They show in detail the methods: qualitative results can be achieved. They free qualitative research from the image that it is useful only for "eggheads" or their playground and destroy the simple distinction between science (high value) and hermeneutics (low value). Qualitative Research methods are applicable to the serious problems of psychotherapy and research. Those wanting to know what serious and well-known researchers in the field do beyond statistical programs will profit from this information about an upcoming field and research orientation.
