Qualitative researchers are continually searching for research methods that engage their participants in the data collection process. When researching living, dynamic systems such as families, researchers need to find methods that can encapsulate the multi-dimensionality of the human experi- ence. The purpose of this paper is to acquaint researchers with some creative and active methods they can use not only to involve their participants in the research process, but also to more fully learn about and experience the per- ceptions, feelings, and life events of their participants. The methods discussed include sculpting, photography and videography, art and drawing, role-playing, writing exercises, metaphors, and timelines.
