The detailed definition of research question and its terms. Now, in this subchapter the fundamental assumptions will be presented concerning the nature of the social reality, scientific production of knowledge and the limits of scientific knowledge. I distinguish between ontological and epistemological fundamental assumptions. As ontology s primarily concerned with the nature of what exists. With the ontological assumptions are meant the research’s concept what constitutes the social reality and what constitutive parts of this social reality should be subject of research and inquiry (Brühl 2015: 30-31).
Research philosophy Research philosophy lay down the background of how researchers understand the world, the choice of research philosophy reflect our knowledge, experiences, preconceptions, and research capability. Thus our knowledge, experiences and etc., which underpin the philosophy choice, will determine our research paradigm, strategy, design and method. (Saunders et al., 2009, p. 128-129). When Bryman describes ontology view, he introduces the objectivism and constructivism as two antithetical dimensions. (p22) However, Saunders 2009 p.119 advocates that positivism can be understood through both ontology and epistemology views.
Intentionality is significant as it enables phenomenologists to work on the relation between that which is within consciousness and that which is transcendent or extends beyond it. (D) Statement of the Problem (hypothesis) The purpose of this thesis will be to tackle some questions such as: -Are there intentional
Overview of Qualitative Research Qualitative Research is mainly about exploratory research. It is used to gain an in-depth understanding of underlying reasons, opinions, and motivations. Qualitative research is also used to discover the patterns of thought and opinions, and explore deeper into the problem. Qualitative data collection methods are vary using unstructured or semi-structured techniques. Some common methods include focus group, individual interviews, and participation/observations.
This aim is further divided into objectives on which whole of the study is resolving. These objectives are as follows: • To determine the concept and history of attachment theory • To evaluate the ways in which attachment style of a client with self-esteem issues assist in treatment plan and case formulation in CBT • To assess the attachment styles in order to attain core beliefs earlier at the time of drawing formulation with the client Research Questions The main research question of the study i.e., does knowing the attachment style of a client with Self-esteem issues can help in the case formulation and treatment plan in CBT? Further divided into varied questions that can help in achieving aims and objectives of research investigation, • What are the basic concepts and history of attachment theory? • What are the ways in which attachment style of a client with self-esteem issues assist in treatment plan and case formulation in CBT? • How attachment style of client can be assessed in case of formulation and treatment plan in CBT?
Importance of Theoretical Considerations in Analyzing Qualitative Data As part of our academic course, this term-paper has been given to us for the further practice and learning on writing term-paper and to understand the importance of theoretical considerations in analyzing qualitative data. Research is a process of building up a thought or idea into knowledge or fact with the help of precise procedure and strategy, to legitimate its truthfulness and accuracy. Creswell states that – “Research is a process of steps used to collect and analyze information to increase our understanding of a topic or issue”. A broad definition of research is given by Martyn Shuttleworth – “In the broadest sense of the word, the definition of research includes
His work led to the formal adoption of sociology as an academic discipline. Durkheim believed that society was composed of many different parts, each with their own function. Harmony could be achieved when all parts of society worked together to achieve their goals. When some in society failed to work together or perform their specified function, dysfunction would
These are the stated values and norms that are preferred by the company (Kreitner, 2013, p.63). Johnson should set the basic assumption which values employees (Kreitner, 2013, p.65). When employees see they are valuable to the company and they are secure it gives them confidence and in return they give their loyalty to the
3. Methodology 3.1 Introduction The purpose of this chapter is to outline the methods used in the gathering of data to answer the dissertation question. Limitations of the method, a description of the research tools and why it is being undertaken will be discussed. Research can be defined as “a systematic and organised effort to investigate a problem that needs a solution and encompasses the process of inquiry, investigation, examination and experimentation” (Sekaran 1992, p.4). Methodology is required to answer the research question and fulfil the objectives of the study.
According to Allio (2012) good leaders require both competence and integrity. Leadership is defined as the accomplishment of a goal through the direction of human assistants (Prentice, 1961). Similarly, leadership is defined as an interaction between two or more members of a group that often involves a structuring or restructuring of the situation and the perceptions and expectations of members (Bass B., 1990). Leaders play important role as they are the one who develop an organizational culture of trust. In a way, they build a foundation of integrity and ethical standards in the organization (Waxler and Higginson, 1990).
