Knowledge and decision-making: two older women's stories
This research explored ways two women considered older in 2010 described their lives as experienced during the 1970s and ways they describe their current experiences. The research addressed connections between relationship dynamics and the decision-making knowledge within these women's experiences. Using purposeful sampling, two participants were selected to represent women who were in their 20's during the 1970s. Research was conducted within a qualitative paradigm with an interactive inquiry design as this fit closely with the discovery of tacit knowledge and the psychological aspects of the research. Factors that limited or provided growth in transitioning referential frames for each woman were made explicit during the interview process and summarized in Chapter Five.
