Contributions in this volume cover ways of knowing, the dynamics of research encounters, new methods of psycho-social inquiry, and the first-hand experience of being a researcher. Since the first volume of Researching Beneath the Surface was published by Karnac in 2009, psycho-social research has become both more established but also more held to scrutiny by a new generation of researchers, practitioners, and clinicians. This volume offers a timely exploration of developments in psycho-social research since that date and brings together a series of papers in which both longstanding contributors to the field and new researchers explore tensions, possibilities and innovations in psycho-socially inspired research.This new volume showcases these advances in psycho-social research methods. The focus is on methodological dilemmas, innovations in method and methodology, and on experiences of conducting psycho-social research in challenging contexts. It also focusses on the contested but pivotal role of psychoanalysis in psycho-social research and explores what can be added by transdisciplinary use of deep ecology, continental philosophy and relational approaches as alternative or supplementary ways of knowing. Finally, the book also offers fresh insight into the practical and emotional issues of conducting oneself as a psycho-social researcher and learning from experience.
