Focus Groups: Culturally Responsive Approaches for Qualitative Inquiry and Program Evaluation
takes an in-depth look at how culturally-responsive focus groups are developed and implemented within the context of qualitative inquiry broadly, and program evaluation more specifically. The book showcases various forms of focus groups and how they can be responsive to specific communities across different disciplines. This book provides:

  • an historical perspective on focus groups
  • a theoretical foundation helpful for supporting focus groups with marginalized groups, vulnerable populations (older adults, children), and participants within non-Western settings
  • basic procedures for conducting focus groups
  • guidelines for cultural responsiveness and
  • case examples of alternative approaches to focus groups that target specific communities and those in different contexts.
It also considers ethical issues around the use of culturally responsive focus groups, while providing guidance on analyzing and interpreting your data and establishing the credibility of your study. Focus Groups is an information rich resource for qualitative researchers and program evaluators at various levels who want to learn about or enhance their knowledge on designing and conducting culturally responsive focus groups.
