Researching Adoption: Analysing Narratives of Children
I am researching on adoption practices in India, in this context adoptive children are one of my key respondents. My methodology is based on qualitative engagement through life narratives, I will be using Children’s Apperception Test (Projective Technique) as it is more participatory with children taking a lead role in telling stories and as a researcher I would only be giving instructions and clarifications. Also, CAT will not introduce directly the theme of adoption which may trigger emotional disturbances in adoptive children.
Kindly let me know if I there is anything particularly I must keep in mind from the ethical point of view.
