Practising Reflexivity in Health and Welfare

Taylor and White, lecturers in social work at the U. of Manchester, UK, examine how professionals in health and welfare settings make sense of and process cases. In the current policy climate, with its emphasis on performance indicators, practitioners have become accustomed to evaluating and justifying how they make use of knowledge. But Taylor and White argue that such quality- assurance methods "leave the messy business of categorization or `diagnosis' unexplored." They urge instead a refocusing of ideas about reflexive practice that draws on research on argument, persuasion, and the powerful consequences of words and language. The authors explore how knowledge is used in professional practice as well as how it is made in everyday encounters. Distributed by Taylor and Francis.
