Abstract: Background: There are a number of different qualitative research methods which can offer significant benefits to psychiatric research. These include thematic analysis, discourse analysis, interpretative phenomenological analysis, ethnography, case studies and grounded theory. Aims: The aim here is to outline and review some of the qualitative approaches that can be of use in psychiatric research, with reference to examples of such research. Conclusion: Qualitative research methods are currently under-utilised in psychiatric research, and can bring a range of benefits to research conducted in this field. Furthermore, psychiatrists are well placed to apply to qualitative methodologies the skills that they acquire through training. Such skills include interview techniques, case write-ups, mental status examinations, history taking, and phenomenological formulations.
