Digital Media Research With Vulnerable Groups

with Bridget Harris

This workshop explores approaches, strategies and issues to consider when conducting qualitive digital media research – specifically, interviews and focus groups – with a focus on working with vulnerable participants. Preparation, planning and ethics processes are key to ensure participant engagement, safety and, potentially empowerment, but so too are steps to safeguard and support the researcher. Impacts of research, responses to trauma, vicarious trauma and resilience and, tools for researchers will be discussed in this session. Please note that the session will draw on work relating to technology and domestic, family and sexual violence.
