Additional Information:Researching Young Women's Bodies examines the methodological difficulties in applying post-modern paradigms within qualitative research with young women. The ethical frameworks for 'sensitive' research (in relation to 'body-hatred') are also examined. The author undertook an original piece of qualitative research in a psychiatric facility and school with a sixth form, to look at attitudes towards the body. This paper examines the specific difficulties in planning such sensitive research and critically examines the solutions developed by the author.
