This book presents a disciplined, qualitative exploration of case study methods by drawing from naturalistic, holistic, ethnographic, phenomenological and biographic research methods. Robert E. Stake uses and annotates an actual case study to answer such questions as: How is the case selected? How do you select the case which will maximize what can be learned? How can what is learned from one case be applied to another? How can what is learned from a case be interpreted? In addition, the book covers: the differences between quantitative and qualitative approaches; data-gathering including document review; coding, sorting and pattern analysis; the roles of the researcher; triangulation; and reporting.

Although the case study research method is increasingly important and used by many researchers it is still not well understood. Case Study Research in the Quick Guides Series explains the main issues which have to be considered before case study research is undertaken as well as providing check lists as to how to go about using this research approach. Case study research is not an easy option and this book points out where the challenges are and what needs to be done to become a competent case study researcher. Issues which are given particular attention include different types of case study, the issue of how many cases are required, research proposals and research protocols when using case studies, the collection and analysis of data. Case Study Research also addressed the analysis of case study data, the case study write up and how to evaluate a case study.

At some point, the therapeutic relationship takes on a certain shape that invites clients to speak their story with all of its pain, hope and angst, and for therapists to become containers of this emotional world of patient. In this light, psychotherapy is the art of emotional engagement or the art of feeling. This book contains nine chapters, with a common binding thread that documents clinical case work. Chapter One is an excellent chapter for those readers who would never think about the door to the therapy room in such a way. From now on, the door will always be viewed as symbolic of the inside and outside, and what that means for the patient. Chapter Two is a fresh viewpoint to the autistoid personality organization, and the therapeutic encounter and treatment of such a character. Readers interested in how to manage difficult cases that concern this type of personality organization will find this chapter informative and educational. Chapter Three is an unusual topic and would appeal to all readers interested in this theme and its conceptualisation within Jungian psychotherapy. Chapter Four is an excellent read and gives the reader a chance to re-think issues about object, method and technique in psychoanalysis. Chapter Five is a worthwhile read and gives a new perspective on the psychology of the child and the process of therapeutically working with children in the context of being separate from, and yet a part of, the family dynamics. Chapter Six is valuable in that it brings into focus the processes of becoming a psychotherapist, and if it is agreed that psychotherapy is a relational practice, the story of becoming a psychotherapist becomes important. Chapter Seven will appeal to those readers who wish to understand that the art of psychotherapy is not always easy, straightforward and without disruptions. Chapter Eight is a comprehensive documentation of the case study of child sexual abuse and the therapeutic process with the child survivor. Readers interested in working with abused children will find this chapter fascinating and informative. Chapter Nine focuses on therapeutically treating sexually abused women, would appeal to readers who have had to encounter similar cases of gender-based violence in their therapy room, and gives a clear indication as to how this integrated model of therapy used can assist such traumatised people.
