  • Developing typologies in qualitative research: the use of ideal-type analysis

    Ideal-type analysis is a relatively new addition to the family of qualitative research methods, which offers a systematic, rigorous method for constructing typologies from qualitative data. This article is a summary of our approach to conducting ideal-type analysis. We hope that this article will help researchers to consider whether using ideal-type analysis may be a suitable approach for their own studies. Authors: Stapley, E., O'Keefe, S. & Midgley, N.

    Adolescent major depressive disorder is highly prevalent and associated with lifelong adversity. Evidence-based treatments exist, but accessible treatment alternatives are needed. We aimed to compare internet-based psychodynamic therapy with an established evidence-based treatment (internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy) for the treatment of adolescents with depression. Authors: Mechler, J., Lindqvist, K., Carlbring, P., Topooco, N., Falkenstrom, F., Lilliengren, P., Andersson, G., Johansson, R., Midgley, N., Edbrooke-Childs, J., Dahl, SH J., Sandell, R., Thoren, A., Ulberg, R., Lindert Bergsten, K. & Philips, B.
