The Use of Video in Social Research: Young People and Emotional Distress.
In this paper we also provide an overview of the use of video methodology in education practice and social research. The work describes the use of video for data collection, the features and potentials of video as a research tool. The students, guided by the professor-filmmaker, use the video and change their way of observing and seeing the social reality. They verify in their environment the reason and the existence of emotional distress. Thus, the students become researchers and the camera becomes an actor in the research process. So the video and visual methodology offer different ways of practicing field research.
