    Grounded theory approach (GTA) is a qualitative research method that generates a theory based on the grounded-on-data analysis. From the onset, this approach, which is widely known in human service areas and internationally, has inherent ambiguities with regard to coding ; this reflects the contrasting educational backgrounds of Glaser and Strauss who studied at Columbia and Chicago, respectively. This paper discusses the actual collaboration process of the two sociologists in developing the GTA. In addition, the main characteristics of the GTA-the concurrent processes of data collection and analysis, theoretical uniqueness of the grounded theory, and theorization of everyday practices in human services-are critically examined.
    GTA is an exceptional sociological research method that has attracted a wide interest not in sociology but in applied areas. An important question that arises is with reference to the implications of this phenomenon for contemporary sociology. Sociology, which conventionally crosses the boundaries of other disciplines, is now itself being studied by researchers in human service areas. Partly due to the GTA, research conducted on sociology and human services are to be compared and examined, and thereby new possibilities of interdisciplinary dialogue emerge.
