Grounded Theory • Emphasizes processes by which individuals construct meaning in relationship to their social context (Charmaz, 2006) • A general, abstract theory of a process, action, or interaction grounded in the views of participants (Creswell, 2009) • No a priori assumptions (Glasser & Strauss, 1967) Daniel J. Bissonnette, June 5, 2014
