LIVING EDUCATIONAL THEORY RESEARCH
During 2019, I travelled to the US, Canada and Lancaster, the UK to present on my Living Educational Research inquiries and what that means for me as a therapeutic practitioner and clinical supervisor.
In October 2017 I became a full PhD student which means that I am now progressing my research toward completion and submission in 2-3 years time.
I have revised the title of my PhD:
"Dynamics of Practice Improvement Within the Supervisory Alliance"
The question I am researching is:
"How do I improve my practice and explain the dynamics of improvement within the Supervisory Alliance?"
I am currently writing about a key value of my practice: "equity". The aim is to create an ethos of equity throughout the research so that its theoretical critiques give attention to valuing diversity, the uniqueness of people, promoting an atmosphere of anti-oppressive practice and acknowledging the presence of privilege in all quarters of society.
I have created this webpage to enable me to share certain aspects of my research more widely. To broaden my influence, as well as making information I discover, as knowledge creation, and the processes of my inquiry, available to the wider world within a community of Living Theory researchers and Adlerian practitioners and beyond.
My research question has the intention of addressing "how I improve my practice..." as an integral part of my desire to live my Adlerian values in a real way that highlights the importance of encouragement alongside the self-determining of those with whom I work and collaborate. My purpose is to engage a culture of social interest and community feeling within which to extend the reach of my inquiries and enable those who visit my website to have a secure way to contact me and share views and contributions to global conversations that are relevant.
As I develop this page I will place information sheets that guide practitioner research and share tools of inquiry and links to other websites that are of value to the researching process.
