This module provides a grounding in qualitative research methods, before venturing into transpersonal approaches to research, offering an introduction to methods which embrace embodied, intuitive and creative ways of expanding the human knowledge base. It not only gives students the opportunity to work with these methods in a research project, but also tackles philosophical and ethical issues surrounding methods in transpersonal psychology.
These concern the centrality of transformation for both researcher and participants, issues arising when participants’ most meaningful experiences may be scrutinised, issues where practices may be evaluated for efficacy, and ideas concerning changing paradigms in psychological science. The module prepares students for their empirical research projects in year 3 of the MSc programme.
