Show Summary Details

Preview

This paper, based on a single case study of a social work research group using images in their research, offers a typology of methodological possibilities for combining verbal and visual elements in social work research. The analysis, based on both group process and group content, focuses on the possible connections between the visual and the verbal components of research, and includes the use of images located as data, method, subject or final product of the research. The relevance of each of these possible locations is discussed in relation to the specific needs of social work research and practice.
