Norman K. Denzin: Interpretive Autoethnography
Bringing in elements of postmodernism and interpretive social science, Denzin re-examines the biographical and autobiographical genres as methods for qualitative researchers. The book points up the inherent weaknesses in traditional biographical forms, and outlines a new way in which biographies should be conceptualized and shaped. The book provides a guide to the assumptions of the biographical method, to its key terms, and to the strategies for gathering and interpreting such materials. Denzin introduces the key concept of 'epiphany', or turning points in person's lives. Along the way, a host of examples are provided from the author's own work and others, making this an extremely useful volume for qualitative researchers.
Looking at the technology all around us-and then explaining how it works, the "How Things Work Encyclopedia" lifts the hood of a car engine, gets inside a TV set, and discovers the power of invisible microwaves. With close-ups, cutaways, and diagrams bringing the technology to life, and timelines illustrating the development of inventions, challenging Interpretive Autoethnography download ebook curiosity quizzes and fascinating facts, the "How Things Work Encyclopedia" lets children really see and understand what's going on inside. When treating a client who has suffered from interpersonal trauma-whether chronic childhood abuse or domestic violence, for example-talk therapy isn't always the most effective course. For these individuals, the trauma and its effects are so entrenched, so complex, that reducing their experience to a set of symptoms or suggesting a change in cognitive frame or behavioural pattern ignores a very basic but critical player: the body. In cases of complex trauma, mental health professionals largely agree that the body itself contains and manifests much of the suffering-self hatred, shame and fear. Take, for example, a woman who experienced years of childhood sexual abuse and, though very successful in her professional life, has periods of not being able to feel her limbs, sensing an overall disconnection from her very physical being. Reorienting clients to their bodies and building their "body sense" can be the very key to unlocking their pain and building a path toward healing.
