Product description


"...an invaluable text for trainees and qualified psychologists alike..." - Counselling Psychology Review

"...a well thought out contribution relevant for any applied psychologist concerned with understanding the philosophical and pragmatic reality of their practice." - International Coaching Psychology Review

"Lane and Corrie provide a timely and stimulating re-examination of the model of the scientist-practitioner in psychology, and subject the traditional conceptions of science which underpin it to sustained critique." - Stephen Gibson, Psychology Learning and Teaching, Vol. 8, No. 2, 2009


"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. The subjects covered include: Innovation and Improvization - 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; and 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, health care professionals and students.
