Abstract

Q methodology is a comprehensive set of techniques, analysis, and methodological principles that permit the scientific study of subjectivity and has become increasingly popular to students in all of the human sciences. Dryzek & Holmes refer to Q methodology as “the best developed paradigm for the investigation of human subjectivity” (2002, p. 20). In this case study, readers will learn the basic elements of conducting research using Q methodology, as well as a case study application of Q, in the area of Criminal Justice Studies, to explore attitudes toward the interaction of mental health and incarceration.
