English term or phrase: naming and categorizing the phenomenon
The theoretical framework adopted in this study was Symbolic Interactionism, because it allows for understanding the meaning that individuals assign to the experienced interactions. Symbolic Interactionism is a theory about human behavior, based on the premise that human experience is measured by interpretation(10). From this perspective, adolescents are considered "experts" in describing their illness situation. Through their report, it can be understood what meaning adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus assign to the interventions they experience every day.

The first step in processing the subjects' statements was the detailed transcription of the tape recordings. Next, the codes, which are the basic analysis units, were extracted. Open coding refers to the part of analysis that specifically concerns naming and categorizing the phenomenon through exhaustive data examination. During open coding, data were "broken" into small phrases, examined, compared for similarities and differences, and questions about the codes were asked, related to the phenomenon contained in the data. Through this process, the phenomenon is questioned or explored, thus allowing for new discoveries. These two analytical procedures are essential for coding the data: "making comparisons" and "making questions" regarding each incident, event, and other aspects of the phenomenon. The coded data were grouped by phenomenon similarity. This process of grouping concepts regarding the same phenomenon is called categorization. One category is saturated when it is no longer possible to add new data, or when no further representative aspects emerge(12).

o anche "categorizzazione"

"La prima fase della costruzione di una grounded theory, di una teoria che emerge dal campo, è, quindi, la riduzione progressiva della varietà delle evidenze empiriche attraverso un processo di classificazione "a imbuto": dai fenomeni ai concetti e, dopo l'eliminazione di quelli ritenuti sovrabbondanti, a poche categorie. Questa fase prende il nome di open coding, il cui risultato ultimo è quello di raggruppare tutti i fenomeni al livello più astratto e sintetico delle categorie. Con le parole di Strauss e Corbin (1990), la codifica aperta è il processo di suddivisione, analisi, comparazione, concettualizzazione e categorizzazione dei dati."
