Higher seminar - The advantages of using mixed methods in research


Lokal: Pilen

In research related to Social Work use of mixed and multiple methods is probably vital. Social work, being about people and work with people, lends itself very well to the use of qualitative methods where it is possible to look in detail at individuals' experiences and at the details of practice. However, quantitative methods, such as surveys or quantitative coding and analysis of administrative data, allows a focus on wider patterns, if less detail or explanation. When we combine methods (whether that means more than one qualitative method or both qualitative and quantitative) we gain both more questions and more answers. I will look at the example of the evaluation of the DRIVE multi-agency intervention with perpetrators abusive to partners and family, and how combining qualitative and quantitative approaches enabled a more comprehensive understanding of the practice required to change perpetrator behaviour.
