Abstract [en]

Although Grounded Theory has been known since 1969, when Anselm Strauss and Barney Glaser wrote The discover of Grounded Theory, it' s use within psychological research has not been very salient. The authors of this report have applied Grounded Theory to two different studies (a) Tumings and tuming points in psychological consultation processes (b) The School psychologist as a collaborator. The research process is described through four different phases qualitatively different from each other (a) identifying indicators (b) concept formation ( c) pattem development and (d) Theory construction. Examples from the two studies conceming collection of data, coding, comparative analysis and memo writing are given through the different phases. It is suggested that these different phases have logical similarities with different statistical methods of analysis. The differences between qualitative concepts and quantitative concepts are discussed. Critical arguments of Grounded Theory and suggestions for - developing the method are presented. Finally it is stated that the method is appropriate and useful in psychological research when the researcher is concerned with contradictory phenomena that might be explained by psychological processes, and that the way to learn the method is to do it.
