In the book Narrative Inquiry, Kathleen Wells (2011) provides a concise and helpful pocket - guide regarding the narrative method for the student and researcher interested in garnering the basics of this qualitative approach. As a post - graduate professor of models and methodological issues in qualitative research, and a researcher who is proficient in investigating phenomena related to social work with the narrative method, she draws on her expertise to provide the reader with a volume of memorable illustrations from scholarly writings which serve to be helpful for those not only in the field of social work, but the fields of psychological and counseling research as well.
