Book launch: ‘Narrative Portraits in Qualitative Research’

Please join the Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry in the celebration of ‘Narrative Portraits in Qualitative Research’ (Routledge), by Dr Edgar Rodríguez-Dorans, Lecturer in Counselling, Psychotherapy, and Applied Social Science at the University of Edinburgh.

Narrative portraiture is both a method for qualitative data analysis and a tool for research communication. The book proposes different ways of engaging with qualitative data; in the form of a systematic approach to narrative analysis, a felt-sense approach, and a collaborative approach between visual arts, performing arts, and social sciences.

The event will include a drink reception, a brief introduction by the author, responses by guest discussants and comments from the public.
