"In a field that at times feels dominated by obfuscating jargon and a cult-like zeal, the editors have produced an accessible, illuminating text that will be of great value to those wishing to gain an introduction to this essential and developing area of mental health research." ( The British Journal of Psychiatry , 1 May 2012) "David Harper and Andrew Thompson's book Qualitative Research Methods in Mental Health and Psychotherapy provides a reference for students and practitioners who are using qualitative research to explore topics related to mental health. The book provides a rich and comprehensive text, with contributions from specialized authors on a number of key themes and research methods relevant to qualitative research. Despite being specifically aimed at those researching mental health issues, this text would be useful for any student or practitioner who wishes to get to grips with 'big q research'..." ( Feminism and Psychology , 2013) "Since receiving this book for review, I have found myself repeatedly recommending it to fellow doctoral researchers from a range of professional backgrounds, at all stages of candidature. I do so because, in my opinion, this book addresses, in an accessible, clear, yet thorough manner, the issues which all students and practitioner-researchers face in aspiring to produce high quality, creative, qualitative research in mental health and psychotherapy." ( QMiP Bulletin Issue 15, Spring 2013)
