New publication on Case Study Evaluation-tool (CaSE)

Postdoctoral Research Associate (University of Cambridge) and SCA Collaborating Researcher, Greta Kaluzeviciute, has published a new article on case study appraisal in Psychology: Research and Review/Psicologia: Reflexão e Crítica.

Kaluzeviciute, G. (2021). Appraising psychotherapy case studies in practice-based evidence: introducing Case Study Evaluation-tool (CaSE). Psychology: Research and Review/Psicologia: Reflexão e Crítica, 34, 9.

In this paper, Greta argues that all forms of research can produce ‘valid evidence’ but the validity itself needs to be assessed against each specific research method and purpose. Existing appraisal tools for qualitative research (JBI, CASP, ETQS)  have limited relevance for the appraisal of systematic case studies due to lack of attunement with clinical and methodological properties of case studies. This paper seeks to attend to this research gap by introducing a novel Case Study Evaluation-tool (CaSE). CaSE is positioned within a purpose-oriented evaluative framework, suitable for the assessment of what each systematic case is good for (rather than determining an absolute measure of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ systematic case studies). Anyone working with case studies (clinicians, researchers, students) will be able to utilise CaSE to assess specific systematic case studies and their relevance to the broader field of psychotherapy research and practice.
