Abstract
Although qualitative research about couples and families is becoming increasingly widespread, the aspect of data analysis remains largely underrepresented in the literature. In this methodological paper, we outline one specific approach to data analysis in the context of multi family member interview studies. Inspired by Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis and Dyadic Interview Analysis, this approach allows for the detailed and systematic analysis of family practices and the co-construction of shared family realities. Based on an example study in the field of medically assisted reproduction, we give a detailed explanation of the aim of this approach, the different steps in the analysis process and the output of a multi family member interview study. The findings of this example study are discussed in light of the methodological challenges and opportunities. Practitioner points Multi family member interview analysis allows for the systematic analysis of family practices and the co-construction of shared family realities The findings might approximate to the therapeutic complexities that systemic therapists often encounter better than classical quantitative or qualitative research One specific data analysis approach in the context of multi family member interview studies is outlined as data analysis remains underrepresented in the literature
