Grounding Research in Practice: Connecting Conversations

  • Nancy K. Brown University of South Carolina


Practice should inform and be informed by research. In a reciprocal and reflexive process, these two dimensions of the helping process need to be linked. The author examines two events in practice that led to the development, implementation, and publication of research. Helping professionals should, by the nature of what they do, understand and engage in a grounded-theory process. This narrative examines how that might occur in clinical settings.
