Most of the students and researchers are normally trained in quantitative data analysis methods. However, not many educational institutions have got teaching programmes in collecting qualitative data of research and analyzing them applying appropriate methods. Very few Seminars & Workshops are conducted on this aspect in our country. Collection and analysis of qualitative data related to Clinical Psychology, Nursing, Sociology, Community Medicine, Public Health, History, Anthropology, Education, Linguistics, Public Administration, Program Evaluation, Family Studies and Political Sciences is always a challenge. Since we don't deal with numbers and have got only matters in the form of discussions or pictures or write-ups, specific methods have to be applied for the analysis of such data. Training the researchers on the methods of collecting data & applying appropriate methods of analysis becomes very important and essential. With this background and its importance, AIMS has planned to conduct a workshop on qualitative data collection and data analysis methods for the benefit of faculty, students and other researchers who are interested in working on these areas.
