This article, in which Amanda Clarke recounts her own experiences as a novice researcher, explores the ways in which research can affect participants. The author argues that researchers must be mindful of the impact their questioning can have on subjects, especially those who are vulnerable, and suggests that a reflexive approach can help minimise the risk of harmful effects.
