This chapter discusses collaborative-dialogic (C-D) process within qualitative research contexts. It begins by identifying clusters of related C-D characteristics that are evident in both qualitative research projects. The C-D way of being can be understood as a postmodern, social constructionist rationality. The qualitative researcher typically begins with some form of interaction, such as interviews, focus groups, or dialogues, yet, after the researcher has gathered the so-called data, the research process commonly switches genres. Research outcomes emerge unpredictably throughout C-D inquiry. Critical mental health knowledge discusses industry conflicts of interest and pseudo-science; gender bias and psychiatry; psychiatric treatments and harm; anticolonial analysis; mental health, neoliberalism and consumerism; and psychiatry as a technique of neoliberal governmentality and therapeutic social control.
