Traditional qualitative interviews typically involve a single subject; interviews of dyads rarely appear outside marketing research and family studies. Experienced qualitative researcher David Morgan's brief guide to dyadic interviewing provides readers with a road map to expand this technique to many other settings. In dyadic interviews, the interaction and co-constructions of the two subjects provide the data for the researcher. Showing the advantages and disadvantages of interviewing two people at once, the first book on this research topic -covers key issues of pair rapport, ethics, confidentiality, and dealing with sensitive topics;-describes the entire process from selecting the participants to the role of the moderator to analyzing results;-uses examples of grad student experiences, physician behavior, substance abuse, services to elderly, and dementia patients to show its many applications.

Editorial Reviews

"Although this book is intended for qualitative rather than quantitative researchers, it can be quite useful for both types. Several years ago we studied how antiretroviral therapy altered the impact on older age parents with HIV-infected adult children in Thailand. Although we used a closed-ended questionnaire, we conducted conversational style interviews with dyads of parent and HIV-infected child and of both parents. There is no question that had this book been available at the time to guide our research we would have benefited very substantially from it."   —John Knodel, University of Michigan, emeritus
