Researcher and Therapist: The Conversations of the Qualitative Interview
Unformatted Document Text:  2 Conversation This paper utilizes the methodologies of discourse analysis to examine the dialogic processes of the qualitative interview and to identify the implementation of therapeutic strategies employed by the interviewer in this context. It examines how these strategies extend or diminish the dialog between interviewer and respondent and how they contribute to the process and outcomes of the qualitative interview. It explores the nature of the qualitative interview as compared to the therapeutic encounter and considers the similarities and differences of the two processes. The therapeutic techniques included for analysis within this paper are empathy, reflective listening, and therapist self-disclosure. The text provides examples that analyze the applications and outcomes of these therapeutic techniques. This paper utilized archival data that was drawn from another researcher’s exploration of gay, lesbian, and bisexual narratives of identity. The current analysis recognizes the co-construction of identity within the interview event and identifies how interpersonal positioning strategies contribute to the narratives offered by respondents.
