Brief Notes on our Different Approaches to Analysis: Example 1

  1. 1. Exploring the Role of Advocacy Support Workers in UK People First Groups Participatory Data Analysis Rohhss Chapman and Lou Townson ESRC Seminar, April 2013
  2. 2. Is analysis too complicated? • Some academics have said it is • We think its not just for academics • It needs to be explained • It takes a long time • But if it takes more time then so what? • There is no right or wrong way but we should not be excluded
  3. 3. Methods used across the groups for later analysis • Supporters interviews (18) • Member interviews (24) • Group work body maps on good/bad support • Focus groups • Communiogrammes • Observations
  4. 4. Example of a team analysis session • Displayed information and photos on wall • Worked through agenda • Listened to tape of interview, stopped it, discussed it, moved on. • Noted all comments • Adjusted themes • Agreed on priorities • Linked themes to evidence.
  5. 5. Example - analysis of locations of support worker power These questions, identified by the team, were applied to the findings Who answers the phone Is the Information accessible Who opens the post Power in offices How is information passed Who represents the group at meetings How are business plans made Who has a desk of their own
  6. 6. Group analysis of support worker power - the sort of things we discussed • “…they don’t seem very well structured, they only have two members on the management committee” (Andy) • “She is making decisions and then getting approval” (Lou) • “Why don’t the members go and get the information for themselves”? (Elizabeth) • “Is there a tension between the things she does and the model of People First “? (Rohhss) • “The support workers only seem to support what they want to” (Malc)
