Abstract

This article offers a reflexive account of conducting research with survivors of female genital mutilation (FGM). It explores the challenges encountered throughout the research process including recruitment, researcher position, and power dynamics. The article also reflects on issues of countertransference between
the researcher and the participants, their impact, and their management. The considerations are important for those engaging in clinical work with survivors of FGM.
