Biography

Greta Kaluzeviciute is a PhD researcher in the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies. Her PhD project, Knowledge generation processes and the role of the case study method in the field of psychotherapy, received full funding from CHASE. In this project, Greta investigates knowledge generation methods in the field of psychotherapy, and considers the current challenges that stem from applying large-scale findings onto individual patients and their particular situations. She proposes a re-consideration of the case study method by assessing its unique reasoning style and further developing epistemological and evidence-based guidelines for case study research. Besides her PhD research, Greta is also a Research Officer in a project exploring the complexities of gaining ethical approval for qualitative psychotherapy/psychosocial research. Greta delivers lectures and seminars across a number of modules in the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies as a Graduate Teaching Assistant.

Thesis

Knowledge generation processes and the role of the case study method in the field of psychotherapy

The project investigates knowledge generation methods in the field of psychotherapy, and considers the current challenges that stem from applying large-scale findings onto individual patients. It re-considers the significance of the case study method by developing epistemological guidelines for case study research, addressing the unique style of thinking in cases, and providing a novel content evaluation tool that can aid researchers in assessing the quality and significance of case study data.
