Sensitizing concepts can be tested, improved, and refined (Blumer, ). However, researchers taking the grounded theory path do not necessarily seek to test, improve, or refine such a concept. They might use sensitizing concepts simply to lay the foundation. Sensitizing concepts as balance points in qualitative inquiry.
Methodological reflections upon a multi-site research Obiettivo del presente contributo è una riflessione sull’uso dei concetti sensibilizzanti per mettere in luce la complessità delle dimensioni implicate in un processo educativo. Working with Groups looks at the field of small group dynamics, focusing on the behaviour and processes typical of management, planning, decision making and learning groups.
For the second edition of this book, the key concepts approach has been retained, taking the reader from theoretical frameworks through to practical applications.
It is divided into five parts: Part 1, Approaches to the 4/5(2). Working with sensitizing concepts book with Herbert Blumer in the s, a sensitizing concept uses the language and expression from the research participant's perspective and sensitizes the researcher to more fruitful lines of enquiry.

FAULKNER William James complained that critics of the concept of pragmatism used the “stock phrase ‘what is new is not true, and what is true is not new’” (quoted in Merton ).
Where Blumer’s recommendations for assembling and shaping “sensitizing concepts” drift into abstractions lacking clear empirical referents (Becker ), Bruno Latour () shows the contingent and temporal nature of the research problem and how scientist at work develop rhetorical strategies to mobilize constituencies and shape understandings.

Sensitizing concepts are constructs that are derived from the research participants' perspective, using their language or expressions, and that sensitize the researcher to possible lines of inquiry. Working with Sensitizing Concepts: Analytical Field Research by Will C.
van den Hoonaard (Paperback, ) Be the first to write a review. By contrast with what he called ‘definitive’ concepts, sensitizing concepts do not involve using ‘fixed and specific procedures’ to identify a set of phenomena, but instead give ‘a general sense of reference and guidance in approaching empirical instances’.
Then when I look at all the excerpts linked to a code I will work. Summary: Originating with Herbert Blumer in the s, a sensitizing concept uses the language and expression from the research participant's perspective and sensitizes the researcher to more fruitful lines of enquiry.
In this book, the author presents the history of the sensitizing concepts technique as well as practical applications for its use. Sensitizing concepts are, broadly speaking, background ideas that inform the overall research problem.
They usually provide a starting point for data analysis and function as an analytic lens or interpretive mechanism throughout the process (Bowen, ; Padgett, ).The term originated with Herbert Blumer, a critic of social theory and proponent of symbolic interactionism—a theoretical.
Developmental evaluation (DE) offers a powerful approach to monitoring and supporting social innovations by working in partnership with program decision makers.
In this book, eminent authority Michael Quinn Patton shows how to conduct evaluations within a DE framework. Patton draws on insights about complex dynamic systems, uncertainty, nonlinearity, and emergence.1/5(1).
Ethnographies Revisited provides first-hand accounts of how leading qualitative researchers crafted key theoretical concepts found in their major book-length ethnographies.
Great ethnographic research lies not in the rigid execution of prescribed methodological procedures, but on the unrelenting cultivation of theoretical ideas.

van den Hoonaard, Will C. “On Developing and Using Concepts in an Icelandic Field-Research Setting.”. sensitizing concept any sociological concept which, in contrast with fully operationalized or ‘definitive concepts’, ‘merely suggests directions along which to look’ (BLUMER, ).Whereas ‘definitive concepts have specified empirical referents which can be readily operationalized, e.g.
'social class’ operationalized in terms of income level or years of schooling, sensitizing. 3a. Step One: Conduct staff assessments. Prior to implementing sensitization and training, it is useful to conduct staff knowledge, attitudes, and practice (KAP) assessments to determine the level, scope and type of sensitization and training that will need to be conducted for different staff members (reception, nurses, doctors, specialists).
Abstract. Departing from H. Blumer's () distinction between definitive and sensitizing concepts, this article suggests that the mediatization literature has overemphasized definitive approaches to conceptualizing media change. Analyzing 2 representative instances, and comparing them with 3 sensitizing approaches, the article argues that future research should clarify several processes.
Key Concepts in Sport Management is an accessible and different guide for students and practitioners alike, on relevant concepts from organisational theory and beyond. It is comprehensive, with 46 chapters, each between and words long, on different concepts.
Furthermore, it shows the interrelationships between these concepts and it has over pages of relevant references.

By then labeling theory had already begun to devolve into a set of sensitizing concepts. The sensitizing concepts qualify interaction designers in considering proxemic consequences of technology design; they serve both as analytic lenses and as generative instruments in a design process.
The proposed sensitizing concepts and the theoretical work of the paper contribute to enhanced Socio-spatial literacy in HCI. In physics, work is defined as a force causing the movement—or displacement—of an object. In the case of a constant force, work is the scalar product of the force acting on an object and the displacement caused by that force.
Though both force and displacement are vector quantities, work has no direction due to the nature of a scalar product (or dot product) in vector mathematics. The concepts of human nature, life struggles, health, and treatment modality in psychology span a broad spectrum.
The majority of counselors and psychologists today practice somewhat eclectically; they are not strictly Freudian or Jungian but are versed in several theories and employ different parts of the theories for different presenting issues.sensitizing concepts to use as starting points for qualitative analysis (Taylor & Bogdan,p.
