Reflections on submitting a PhD Author: Steven Lucas Having just submitted my PhD research, this blog has offered an opportunity to reflect on that process and share something of my research experiences.
When I put down the PhD, War and Peace came to hand and placed my delusions of epic length in to perspective. On the other hand, when one thing ends another must begin.
I am a social worker, so this was familiar territory.

The fieldwork took place in a local authority, not a million miles from where I previously had been employed. Here I interviewed parents, children and young people, who were working with a variety of practitioners, and whose needs and circumstances reflected their diverse life experiences.
The motivation for this research was a personal quest to answer questions from my previous life as a practitioner, but also because a review of literature confirmed that service users are rarely asked what they think about how services engage them.
Of course, they do get to tick boxes every so often, like everyone else. At this moment in time it seems we could all spend most of the day giving feedback on everything we buy, on everywhere we go and on every organisation that we find ourselves involved with. But, someone else always decides on what the questions should be, and what kind of answer is acceptable.
Equally I have to acknowledge that interviewing, and analysing the responses, is in no sense a pure instrument of objective inquiry. However, being asked questions using your own language and answering in your own time, at length, is the most readily accessible and sophisticated way we have of communicating and exploring experiences and concerns with another person.
It might not be the only way, but at least this allows interviewees to self-consciously reflect on their experiences and that allows an ethical power as well.
I do need to qualify that with an acknowledgement that verbal communication is not so readily available for everyone and thinking about the challenges of communication for particular respondents is clearly important.
Your employer will then be able to understand and process this information, offering a practical professional assessment to service users which forms the basis for a working relationship.
Some call it professional distance. When I began my fieldwork, I was not sure just how different it would feel being a qualitative researcher and not being a social worker.
It was certainly liberating listening to the stories and not having to give an official response or advice.
