Abstract

Interest in phenomenological research has been growing steadily over the last decade as researchers have sought to capture the richness of individual experience. However, the sheer complexity of ideas embedded within phenomenology is challenging. Confusions abound as to what phenomenology means, let alone how to apply it as a research method. Misconceptions and contradictions are apparent in the literature.This paper starts with a broad review of some current phenomenological literature relevant to occupational therapy. The key principles of the phenomenological approach are then clarified, followed by an exploration of how these might be applied practically in research.
