Qualitative Case Study In Case Studies
Though quantitative research is considered more valid and legitimate, qualitative is the method that most are therapist use because of its natural relationship to art therapy. Qualitative and quantitative research appear to be at opposite ends of the continuum in research styles. Qualitative case study research and phenomenological research are two styles of qualitative research that I feel are most used in art therapy.
