Theory, Method, and Triangulation in the Study of Street Children.
Lucchini, Riccardo
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v3 n2 p167-70 May 1996
Describes how a comparative study of street children in Montevideo (Uruguay), Rio de Janeiro, and Mexico City contributes to a synergism between theory and method. Notes how theoretical approaches of symbolic interactionism, genetic structuralism, and habitus theory complement interview, participant observation, and content analysis methods; triangulation of methods allows high degree of reliability in qualitative research exploring children's perspectives.
