Abstract: A critical pathway for conceptual innovation in the social is the construction of theoretical ideas based on empirical data. Grounded theory has become a leading approach promising the construction of novel theories. Yet grounded theory–based theoretical innovation has been scarce in part because of its commitment to let theories emerge inductively rather than imposing analytic frameworks a priori. We note, along with a long philosophical tradition, that induction does not logically lead to novel theoretical insights. Drawing from the theory of inference, meaning, and action of pragmatist philosopher Charles S.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors highlight seven primary domains of impairment observed in children exposed to complex trauma and identify phenomenologically based domains based on the extant child clinical and research literatures.

These phenomenologically based domains have been identified based on the extant child clinical and research literatures, the adult research on Disorders of Extreme Stress Not Otherwise Specified (Pelcovitz et al, 1997; van der Kolk, Pelcovitz, Roth, Mandel, McFarlane, & Herman, 1996; van der Kolk, Roth, et al., in press), and the combined expertise of the NCTSN Complex Trauma Taskforce.
