TitleExploring embodied and located experience: memory work as a method for drug research
AuthorsAnderson, K. and McGrath, L.
Abstract

• Memory Work involves the production of specific, detailed memories which are then discussed as a group. The advantages of this method for researching drug experiences are discussed.
• The process is participant-led, as participants write their memories, and take part in the analysis.
• Memories are particularly rich in the detail of embodied, situated experiences.
• The combination of the written memories and participant reflections and sense making in the discussion creates a particularly rich data set.
• Disadvantages include the level of literacy, and commitment to the process, needed by participants.
