|Abstract: ||This paper reflects on the use of a range of interviewing strategies carried out
with 13-14 year olds for a research project about young people’s problems and
coping strategies. The advantages and disadvantages of using both group and
individual interviews with various task-based activities (grouping and ranking
exercises, spider diagrams and charts) and stimulus material (problem pages,
video clips and common phrases) are examined. The development and use of an
innovative technique, the ‘secret box’, is also discussed. The mix of techniques
alongside straightforward questioning was designed to offer variety to engage
young people’s interest, to account for their different preferences, to
stimulate discussion about a potentially sensitive topic and to help to lessen
the unequal power relationship between the adult researcher and the young part|
