The contemporary world currently faces multi-level challenges, including cross-border migration, economic crises and myriad health issues, including the recent COVID-19 pandemic. Within this wider context of ongoing fluidity, transition and diversity, qualitative research methodologies in psychology are rapidly evolving, featuring innovative ways to examine the dynamic interrelation of societal and psychological processes.

The Routledge International Handbook of Innovative Qualitative Psychological Research sets the stage for cutting-edge debates on how innovative approaches in qualitative research in psychology can contribute to tackling current challenges in our society. The handbook depicts innovation in qualitative research in psychology with respect to methodological approaches like visual methods, arts-based research, discursive and narrative approaches, multimodal approaches, and pluralistic/mixed methodology approaches. It addresses a wide range of contemporary, challenging topics at the intersection of the psychological with the societal sphere, like globalization, climate change, digitalization, urbanization, social marginalization, gender and sexism, youth cultures, global mobility and global health risks. The book also includes contributions from various European countries across different fields of psychology, like clinical, health, social, educational, environmental, developmental, organizational, political and media psychology.

This is a valuable text for anyone teaching qualitative research courses in psychology as well as in related disciplines like mental health, education and sociology. It will also be of great interest to any qualitative researcher in the behavioral and social sciences wishing to have an overview of the latest developments in the field.
