Pluralistic Practice Research
Pluralistic practice is grounded in an appreciation of the value of different ways of knowing, including personal experience, reflection on practice, theory, cultural sensitivity and ethics. It embraces the contribution to understanding that can be achieved through diverse research methodologies – qualitative, quantitative, case studies, autoethnography – and a wide range of disciplines including psychology, sociology, social anthropology, ecology, neuroscience, philosophy and the arts.
The aims of the Pluralistic Practice Research Network are to promote:
- Research awareness and research-informed practice in pluralistic therapists
- Communication and collaboration between those undertaking research
- Opportunities for practitioners to take part in research studies
- Dialogue around the meaning and role of research
- Information about research initiatives, resources and events.
The Pluralistic Practice Research Network is operated by a small group of practitioner-researchers. If you want to be involved, or to contribute items for inclusion in these pages, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
