This book provides a bridge between the introductory research methods books and the discipline-specific, higher level texts. Its unique feature is the coverage of the detailed process of research rather than the findings of research projects. Chapter authors have been carefully selected by their expertise, discipline and location to give an eclectic range of perspectives. Particular care has been taken to balance positivist with interpretivist approaches throughout. The authors focus is on the practical consequences of research philosophies, strategies and techniques by using their own research and by evaluating the work of others. Advanced Research Methods in the Built Environment addresses common topics raised by postgraduate level researchers rather than dealing with all aspects of the research process. Issues covered range from the practicalities of producing a journal article to the role of theory in research. The material brought together here provides a valuable resource for the training and development of doctoral and young researchers and will contribute to a new sense of shared methodological understanding across built environment research.

Family caregiving affects millions of Americans every day, in all walks of life. At least 17.7 million individuals in the United States are caregivers of an older adult with a health or functional limitation. The nation’s family caregivers provide the lion’s share of long-term care for our older adult population. They are also central to older adults’ access to and receipt of health care and community-based social services. Yet the need to recognize and support caregivers is among the least appreciated challenges facing the aging U.S. population. Families Caring for an Aging America examines the prevalence and nature of family caregiving of older adults and the available evidence on the effectiveness of programs, supports, and other interventions designed to support family caregivers. This report also assesses and recommends policies to address the needs of family caregivers and to minimize the barriers that they encounter in trying to meet the needs of older adults.



Emotions and fieldwork

What is the place of emotions in fieldwork? Do emotions hinder research, or do they help the researcher to understand better those they are studying? Qualitative researchers have mixed feelings about emotions and the effects on their research. Consequently, many fieldworkers allow themselves to have particular feelings, such as closeness with participants, and try to deny or get rid of emotions deemed inappropriate within the fieldwork community. The significant costs associated with ignoring feelings are taken up in this volume as Kleinman and Copp explore links between emotions and analysis. The authors examine how fieldworkers' feelings--about their professional identity, their work, and the people they study--inform analyses. The conclusion offers an extended example from one of the author's field studies to highlight how fieldworkers' emotions can add power to qualitative analyses. An appendix demonstrates how to weave emotions into fieldnotes and into preliminary analyses. "Of the many recent methodological contributions, Sherryl Kleinman and Martha Copp's Emotions and Fieldwork offers a unique and important perspective, one that should be taken seriously by quantitative and qualitative researchers alike. No matter what variety of research one conducts, Kleinman and Copp's methodological critique provides an important way of thinking about the research process." --Theory and Methods "Kleinman and Copp move qualitative research into a new domain of discussion by focusing on the role of emotion in fieldwork. . . . Well-written and tightly organized, Emotions and Fieldwork is a groundbreaking contribution to the literature on ethnography and fieldwork." --New Ethnographies "This is a valuable research monograph for practitioners and students of qualitative methods and stands in bold contrast to books that advocate leaving emotions at home when one goes to the field. Kleinman and Copp understand the emotional complexities of fieldwork and the empowerment that may result from exploring feelings thoroughly. Reading this book might ameliorate some of the culture shock that can occur for the novice, who expects it all to work like following recipes in a cookbook." --Qualitative Sociology

“ I applaud [this] book for providing a much needed overview of the entire “behavioral intervention pipeline.” It fills a unique niche in its coverage of key theoretical and methodological aspects as well as its case examples and professional development considerations, which makes the content accessible and practical for a broad audience.” -Marcia Ory, PhD From the Foreword This unique text provides comprehensive coverage of one of the most neglected—yet vitally important--areas of public health research: developing, evaluating, and implementing novel behavioral interventions in service and practice settings. Written for Masters- and Doctoral-level courses as well as novice and expert researchers in this area, the book examines the most critical issues surrounding this form of research in order to maximize the ability of intervention researchers to successfully implement current and future evidence-based protocols in practice settings. Expert contributors embrace key challenges —the complexities of health care delivery, disease management and prevention, rising costs, and changing population demographics—in shaping the push toward advancing more efficient and effective behavioral interventions and methodologies. Tackling numerous topics that have been neglected in traditional randomized trial handbooks, methodology texts, and books on dissemination and implementation science, the book addresses: ways to develop and advance an intervention, emerging hybrid trial designs - theories and new models for integrating behavioral interventions with implementation science - - recruitment and retention strategies for inclusion of diverse samples - research designs for different stages of intervention development - treatment fidelity models and measures - novel measurement and analytic strategies - cost analyses - selection of control groups - use of mixed methodology - ethics and informed consent - technology-based intervention approaches – professional considerations. Abundant case examples from successful behavioral intervention trials—both national and international--illustrate key concepts. Key Features: Includes examples of a wide range of interventions including individuals across the life span and of diverse communities and health systems Replete with case examples from successful behavioral intervention trials Presents the challenges of and strategies for advancing behavioral interventions for immediate use in practice Written by world-recognized expert authors and contributors Provides novel coverage of a great variety of important—but previously neglected--topics

Before new interventions can be used in disease control programmes, it is essential that they are carefully evaluated in "field trials", which may be complex and expensive undertakings. Descriptions of the detailed procedures and methods used in trials that have been conducted in the past have generally not been published. As a consequence, those planning such trials have few guidelines available and little access to previously accumulated knowledge. In this book the practical issues of trial design and conduct are discussed fully and in sufficient detail for the text to be used as a "toolbox" by field investigators. The toolbox has now been extensively tested through use of the first two editions and this third edition is a comprehensive revision, incorporating the many developments that have taken place with respect to trials since 1996 and involving more than 30 contributors. Most of the chapters have been extensively revised and 7 new chapters have been added.
