Dr Billy Lee
I offer qualitative research supervision using a phenomenological psychological approach to understanding the lived experiences of special populations, including culture, ethnicity, and mental health.
My research investigates "lived experience". I am interested in how our personal histories, bodies, culture, and existential situation influence how we experience ourselves and other people, and how we interpret, avoid and express feeling and being.
I use Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis to conduct experience-near interviews with special populations. My current projects include i) therapeutic listening and communication; ii) life transitions and identity development; iii) and emotional communication and perception.
