Reflections on Involvement

By: Sally Biskin, Val Barcroft, Wulf Livingston & Sean Snape

The research project presented by this thesis sought to offer an exploratory and participative enquiry into the nature of service user and carer a social work qualifying programme. Whilst we describe the approach and some of the specific findings, our primary purpose is to provide a reflexive analysis of the sometimes challenging process of getting to and undertaking the research, and what can be learnt from attempting to construct an inclusive, participatory model. Thus, the presented discourse seeks to explain its epistemological assumptions through consideration of the literature and events that located the project, describes the actual process and its findings, and finally reflects upon the practicalities of undertaking an aspiring participative research approach, alongside the emergent learning outcomes and possible implications.
