Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


This video tutorial considers how researchers might engage participants, and retain a reflexive ethical research design. This is argued to be especially important in researching complex experiences, where participants may need particular vulnerabilities to be considered in terms of ethics. "Ethics" as such is argued to be a fluid process, with the ethical consent itself acting as a baseline within a research process which must keep the safety and respect for participants at the forefront of the activity, even when unanticipated issues present. Expecting the unexpected is therefore a critical aspect of a researcher's skill set. In particular this video identifies; Rapport; Understanding the interview experience for the participant themselves and engaging with them. Resilience; What is it like for you, the researcher, to hear a story of trauma and Reflexivity; How do you respond to what you hear?
