Transformative Mixed Methods Research to Study Resilience
Speaker: Donna Mertens
This workshop focuses on providing participants with a framework for thinking about planning, implementing, and using mixed methods research with marginalized communities. The transformative approach to mixed methods research incorporates the goals of furthering human rights and social justice by recognizing and supporting the resilience of members of marginalized communities. Dr. Mertens will share examples of transformative mixed methods resilience research from diverse contexts, including programs designed to serve women, people with disabilities, deaf people, and racial/ethnic minorities. Strategies that are culturally responsive that have a high potential to lead to transformative change will be illustrated. Participants will have an opportunity to apply strategies to design transformative mixed methods research to a case study and to discuss applications of these strategies in their own work.
