Free Webinar: Culturally Responsive Focus Groups
This webinar is part of the Culturally Responsive Research Webinar Series presented by NVivo and SAGE Publications.
This webinar will focus on how focus groups can be tailored to meet the needs of specific minoritized groups (e.g., Black women). The implications of conducting culturally responsive focus groups online will also be explored.

Free Webinar: Survey Methods as an Opportunity for Analytic Integration in Mixed Methods Evaluation
This webinar is part of the Qualitative Research & Innovation Webinar Series presented by NVivo and SAGE Publications.
This presentation shines light on the opportunity to use surveys for a more robust mixed methods evaluation. Rather than analyzing qualitative and quantitative data separately and comparing results in a narrative, survey methods allow evaluators to move the point of integration from results to analysis. Integration during analysis often leads to the discovery of complex relationships and initiates new ideas. The New Hampshire Young Adult Assessment (NH YAA) will be used as an example to demonstrate analytic integration using QDA software. The NH YAA is an online survey that assesses substance use behaviors and beliefs among young adults. The team integrated the data for analysis through merging in NVivo. This facilitated comparative analysis of coded qualitative data across quantitatively defined subgroups (e.g., type of substance used) matched at the participant level. A visual joint display will be used to present findings.

Free Webinar: Análisis de datos bilingüe participativo innovador con inmigrantes latinx/@: lenguaje, poder y transformación
Culturally Responsive Research Webinar Series - Las percepciones de los inmigrantes latinx/@ son esenciales para desarrollar intervenciones que aborden mejor los fenómenos multinivel que afectan la salud mental. A pesar de los importantes avances en métodos que incorporan genuinamente prácticas de investigación participativa, la atención a la recopilación, el análisis y la difusión de datos en colaboración es limitada. Nuestro objetivo es describir el desarrollo y la implementación de prácticas de investigación para abordar estas brechas a través del énfasis y la comprensión de la centralidad del lenguaje en los procesos de investigación colaborativa.
The insights of Latinx/@ immigrants are essential to developing interventions that better address complex multi-level phenomena impacting mental health. Despite important advances in methods that genuinely embody participatory research practices, attention to collaborative data collection, analysis and dissemination are limited. Our aim is to describe the development and implementation of research practices to address these gaps through an emphasis on and understanding of the centrality of language in collaborative research processes.
Presenters: Julia Meredith Hess (University of New Mexico), Cirila Estela Vasquez Guzman (University of New Mexico & Oregon Health Science University), Dulce Medina (Centro Savila), Norma Casas (Encuentro), Margarita Galvis (Centro Savila), Eduardo Gonzales (New Mexico Dream Team)
