A superby constructed text, which offers the clarity required for engaging with research ethics in somewhat tricky fields of study.

I have recommended this book, as I feel it will help practitioner researchers recognise that ethics is interwoven at every stage of the research process, and gives examples of how ethics work at different stages of the research journey.

This is an excellent book for postgraduate researchers who are seeking to go beyond the "tick-box" approach of procedural ethics. It is very useful to those who inhabit the swampland of real life, where the boundary between institutional review boards and the research needs of psychotherapy are far from straight and clear.

This is a useful resource that introduces students to a range of social contexts which explore ethics-based research. The short case examples are invaluable in demonstrating application of theory to research practice

A must for those involved in health care research

It is helpful to have a text on ethics specifically for those students working in health and social care. It is well written and shows empathy for the service user and researcher.
