This book bridges scholarly forms of inquiry and practitioners
daily activities. It introduces inquiry as a process of relational
construction, offering resources to practitioners who want to
reflect on how their work generates practical effects.
There are hundreds of books on research, but in keeping with
social scientific traditions, many emphasize method and neglect
broader, overarching assumptions and interests. Further, most are
written in ways that speak to those in the academic community and
not to a wider audience of professionals and practitioners. The
present text lays out relational constructionist premises and
explores these in terms of their generative possibilities both for
inquiry and social change work. It is applicable for professionals
in the fields of social services, education, organizational
consulting, community work, public policy, and healthcare. Using
accessible language and extensive use of case examples, this book
will help reflective practitioners or practice-oriented academics
approach inquiry in ways that are coherent and consistent with a
relational constructionist orientation.
This volume will be useful for undergraduates, graduate
students, and practitioners engaged in professional development,
with particular use for those scholar-practitioners who want to
reflect on and learn from their practice and who want to produce
practical results with and for those with whom they are working. It
is also aimed at those scholar-practitioners who want to contribute
to a wider understanding of how social relations (groups,
organizations, communities, etc.) can work effectively.
