I am in need of some help...
I am hoping to write my research proposal soon and with this, I am hope to find up to 15 participants to interview peoples experience's towards a mental disorder that is not in the DSM-5.
I am hoping to find these participants through social media, and when I have done, I will offer them to do a Skype interview (as most will not be in a close vicinity to me) and record the conversation (with their consent)... I was wondering if this method of collecting data will be accepted if I were to put the research proposal through?
As well as this, I was wondering what kinda of method would be most appropriately used in order to analysis this data?
More information on this dissertation are as follows... This will hopefully be a semi-structured interview, I will have some key things I would want to ask, An example: what symptoms do they have, and how often does this mental disorder effects their every day life, and also what are the possible 'triggers' and how many hours a day does it effect them.
There will also be room for an open conversation, so I am able to explore peoples own personal experiences and see if their is any differences from person to person...
Any help much appreciated!
