Overview

This book is a comprehensive, intelligible guide to grounded theory with a focus on classic grounded theory. It will be useful for graduate students, experienced researchers, and practicing professionals who want to use the method for practical purposes. It will also be useful for mentors and teachers of grounded theory. A glossary is included in the preface so readers can familiarize themselves with grounded theory terminology before beginning the chapters. Its seven chapters provide a comprehensive guide to grounded theory. Chapter one covers how the author's familiarity with the symbolic interactionist perspective gained from his undergraduate sociology professors enabled him to readily discern how and why Glaser and Strauss had different understandings about grounded theory and what those differences were. Chapter two discusses the uniqueness of grounded theory in relation to other methods and the differences between classic and constructivist grounded theory. Chapter three provides practical tips for selecting and working with a dissertation or thesis committee for grounded theory. The longest chapter, Chapter four, is a detailed, step-by-step guide for learning and doing every stage of the classic grounded theory process, with examples and exercises. Chapter five discusses "grounded action," a multi-step applied grounded theory method devised by the author. It includes how he used it to develop a unique grounded anger management program. Chapter Six discusses "grounded therapy," another applied grounded theory method the author devised for conducting counseling/therapy, with examples. Chapter Seven presents grounded theory teaching models for undergraduate and graduate students.
