What is Interpretative phenomenological analysis?

Interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) is an experiential qualitative approach to research in psychology and the human, health and social sciences. IPA has an idiographic focus, which means that it aims to offer insights into how a given person, in a given context, makes sense of a given phenomenon.

Aims, objectives and learning outcomes

  • To be able to position IPA work epistemologically for academic purposes
  • To gain insight into drafting IPA-friendly interview schedules
  • To actively work to interpret beyond description with real data
