Understanding Qualitative Research Designs

In qualitative research, the researcher plays the role of the film critic and gathers an abundance of data, analyzes the data for unifying themes, and interprets the data for the consumer. As a scholar practitioner, you play the role of the audience member and must determine how the researcher’s interpretation applies to your world of practice.

In this Discussion you explore data analysis and interpretation in qualitative research and deconstruct professional counseling articles and analyze the results.

With these thoughts in mind:

select a counseling-related qualitative research article that contains a description of data analysis procedures and clear recommendations for practice.

Post a brief summary of the article you selected and provide full APA citation. Based on the analysis and interpretation of the results, what conclusions did you draw and how would you use the results to inform your practice? Be specific and provide examples.
