Description

This presentation acknowledges the deficiency and necessity for research regarding emotional processing of firefighters at risk of developing cancer due to occupational risk. The developing research project will use qualitative methodology to gather and investigate subjective detailed descriptions of firefighters' psychological experiences regarding occupational risk. Because the goal of this project is to identify explanatory concepts of emotional processing, we will follow a grounded theory approach. Participants, a minimum of six firefighters, will undergo in-person interviews based on three open-ended questions. All interviews will be audio recorded, transcribed, coded, and analyzed for similar themes and patterns.
