Research Design

        Qualitative research is commonly sharing the experience of a group and therefore focused on narrative. According to statistics solutions (2018), it is often critiqued as being “soft” and open to multiple interpretations. The purpose of qualitative approach is to succinctly scrutinize peoples’ experience and their interpretations and meanings through social life. Phenomenology is an approach to qualitative research used by researchers that focuses on the commonality of a lived experience within a particular group. The fundamental goal of the approach is to arrive at a description of the nature of the particular phenomenon   (Creswell, 2013). As stated by De Vos (1998), the phenomenological approach concerns itself with understanding and interpreting the meaning that participants give to their everyday lives. As a research tool, phenomenology is based on the academic disciplines of philosophy and psychology and has become a widely accepted method for describing human experiences. Phenomenological research is typically conducted through the use of in-depth interviews of small samples of participants. By examining the point of view of multiple participants, a researcher can start to come up with a conclusion regarding what it is like to experience a certain phenomenon from the perspective of those who have lived the experience.
