Abstract

The aim of the study is to explore the migration experiences of a group of post-apartheid white South Africans to Australia. The work is grounded in relational psychoanalytic thinking while using the constructivist grounded theory method (GTM), as proposed by Charmaz (2006), to analyse the data. The combination of these two frames represents an extension of the GTM by including a focus on the co-creation of data, and provides a structured approach to psychoanalytic research.
