The Clinical Perspective in Fieldwork

The Clinical Perspective in Fieldwork

Volume: 5
Other Titles in:
Qualitative Research

June 1987 | 77 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Unlike other types of qualitative research, the clinical perspective in field research does not aim to be impartial and uninvolved. The clinician is usually a consultant brought in specifically to effect change in an organization, and therefore works under a very different set of technical and ethical restraints. Edgar Schein succinctly outlines the clinical perspective in field research, how it differs from other types of qualitative research and its inherent rewards and difficulties.
Discovering the Clinical Perspective
How the Clinical and the Ethnographic Relationship Differ
Gathering, Analyzing, and Validating Data
Professional and Ethical Issues in Clinical Versus Ethnographic Work

It is interesting for who is conducting projects for organizational changes.
