I wasn't interested in any themes, as the theme is the name of each of ten principles. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply to my question! I found some of the references you mention and they seem very relevant and useful.
I have to say that I used only thematic analysis to date. The philosophy that guides this book is that different methods have different advantages and are used for different purposes, but that the understanding of substantive research issues such as medication adherence can benefit from the use of multiple methods.

Hello Everyone, I just came across this thread while searching on thematic analysis and content analysis. I have some articles that discuss either thematic analysis or content analysis but no text that compares both methods - I would be very interested if there is such readings out there! Thank you so much, Susanne! I hope this will help you. I have used thematic so far as it seems more straight forward.
I think that in qualitative research, thematic analysis and content analysis can be one in the same depending on the number of steps we use and the type of qual research design. A unique feature of this book is that the editors and authors are experts on both qualitative and quantitative methods, and that these two approaches to research in clinical and health psychology are given equal weight. However, I do have two more questions now. The book provides a detailed, yet concise, explanation of both qualitative and quantitative approaches and draws upon case-study examples to illustrate how these can be used in a variety of health-care settings, with special relevance to clinical disorders, disease prevention and health promotion. It then evolved toward sociology and became more qualitative. They have, however, written several book chapters which are useful for the additional examples that they contain.

I very much like the idea of the process thinking here - with the content analysis coming first as a more basic way of approaching the data material, and then proceeding with a thematic analysis. I like the idea of thinking of thematic analysis as a form of latent content analysis - it makes it easier to understand the distinction. Historically the terms 'content analysis', 'qualitative content analysis' and 'thematic analysis' have been used interchangeably to refer to very similar approaches to qualitative data analysis.
If you want to stay close to your informants' own words you should primarily use a descriptive approach. They are very similar in the rules for coding but the objective is the point that make thematica analysis unique in content analysis family. Research Methods for Clinical and Health Psychology fulfils the demand for a textbook explaining how qualitative and quantitative methods can be used explicitly in a health psychology context. Key features of the book include: - A clear and concise narrative - Real-life case studies and examples drawn from clinical practice. If thematic analysis is a form of content analysis - are there any more forms of content analysis very curious about that?
