systemic inquiry: innovations in reflexive practice research

book: eds. gail simon and alex chard


books description:

This book showcases innovative approaches to research for systemic and relationally reflexive practitioners. In conducting research we need to get alongside people in a disenfranchised world and find out their truths, our truths and collaborate to make the world a better, safer place? Internationally acclaimed contributors propose innovative research methodologies which promote sensitivity, creativity and political awareness to use everyday practice as powerful and transformative research practices.

The chapters offer practical and theoretical help in forging connections between relationally sensitive practice, reflexive inquiry and the wider field of post-positivist qualitative inquiry. Reflexivity weaves systemic social constructionist, collaborative dialogical and narrative practices in the fields of therapy, consultation, teaching, supervision, leadership, organisational development, community work and activism.


we recognise and pay respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, their ancestors, the elders past, present and future from the different First Nations across this country. we acknowledge the importance of connection to land, culture, spirituality, ancestry, family and community for the wellbeing of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families.
