Review of “Research Methods for Clinical and Health Psychology” edited by David F Marks and Lucy Yardley
′Most texts on research methods focus either on qualitative approaches or on quantitative approaches. A unique feature of this book is that the editors and authors are experts on both qualitative and quantitative methods, and that these two approaches to research in clinical and health psychology are given equal weight. The philosophy that guides this book is that different methods have different advantages and are used for different purposes, but that the understanding of substantive research issues such as medication adherence can benefit from the use of multiple methods. The methods are described in sufficient detail that readers can learn how to apply them without needing to consult other sources′
