It is timely that we revisit the scientist-practitioner model. David Lane and Sarah Corrie make a persuasive and coherent case that it not only continues to serve its purpose, but that it can be reinvigorated to inform and enhance our practice and to support us as we move forward to face the challenges of the twenty-first century.
Ingrid Lunt, from the foreword
"The Modern Scientist-Practitioner" argues for a radical rethink of how we understand the science-practice relationship and the notion of the scientist-practitioner model.
Drawing on the latest innovations and research from the fields of anthropology, industry, philosophy, psychology and science, David Lane and Sarah Corrie present a new vision of the scientist-practitioner model that is dynamic, contextualized and synergistic. Subjects covered include:
- Innovation and Improvisation: The Unacknowledged World of the Creative Scientist-Practitioner.
- What Kind of Scientists are We? Re-examining the Nature of Scientific knowledge.
- Acquiring the Art of Reasoning: Straddling the Worlds of Rigour and Meaning.
- Arriving at Shared Psychological Narratives: Formulation and Explanation.
- The Scientist-Practitioner in Applied Psychology Settings.
- Learning for Tomorrow: Professional Survival in an Uncertain World.
This timely and thought-provoking book will appeal to professionals at all stages of their careers, including psychologists of all disciplines, researchers, educators, policy-makers, healthcare professionals and students.
