Crossing Cultural Boundaries: An Ethnographic Study
Principal Investigator: Cheryl Mattingly
Jan 1997 – Dec 1999
The purpose of this three-year ethnograhic study is to examine how the problems of children with special health care needs are variously understood or framed by family members and health care practitioners, the influence on different frames or misunderstandings on the intervention process, the process undertaken by family members and practitioners to negotiate or impose alternative views, and the impact of these multiple perspectives on the effectiveness of interventions.
