It is my hope in this chapter to encourage the use of a broader range of options for qualitative data collection and analysis in psychotherapy change process research. To do this, I first briefly outline some of the epistemological issues associated with CPR. Then I briefly summarize two useful tools for collecting useful and interesting qualitative data about change processes. After this, I turn to an example of qualitative data analysis methods appropriate to CPR.
