The book is divided into three coherent sections:
- Conceptual, methodological and ethical issues in researching children's experiences
- Methods for conducting research with children
- The generation and analysis of text
Researching Children's Experience provides examples of how researchers from a variety of social science perspectives have set about carrying out research into children's experience. Useful to students embarking on a research project, and to experienced researchers wishing to explore new methods, Greene and Hogan's book is an essential addition to anyone doing research on children. It will be especially useful to those in developmental psychology, education, nursing and other disciplines interested in studying children's experience.
