Written by two authors who have conducted numerous qualitative studies, taught graduate-level research courses and advised many master's and doctoral students who have used qualitative methods in their pursuits, this text provides a focused approach to qualitative research for students and professionals in physical activity and health care fields. Through "Qualitative Research in Physical Activity and the Health Professions", readers learn how to frame a researchable problem, how to develop questions to gain insight that specifically applies to the problem and how to guide the procedures for data collection and analysis. The result is a text that demystifies this very applicable type of research. This title will greatly appeal to physical activity and health students and professionals alike as they seek to learn how to use qualitative research in their work.
