This year TBT Basic was the fourth being held by CICP. Thirty people from various cities in Indonesia were participated in the training.

There were five approaches (constructive realism, ethnography, meta-ethnography, discourse analysis, and grounded theory) introduced to the participants, followed by basic practical skills in analyzing data. Each theme was delivered by an expert on the topic: Prof. Dr. Faturochman, M.A. (constructive realism), Dr. Wenty Marina Minza, M.A. (ethnography), Fathul Himam, M.Psi., M.A., Ph.D. (meta-ethnography), Dr. Bagus Riyono, M.A. (grounded theory) and Prof. Dr. I Dewa Putu Wijana, S.U., M.A. (discourse analysis).
