Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapportKapitel i bok


In a study where coaching actions and research actions became intertwined processes, reflexively co-created dialogical joint actions, the 55 participating Swedish social workers became inspired to invite children and other clients into dialogical collaboration in social investigational work. The use of dialogical communication and interplay both in the emerging coaching and participatory action research (PAR) reflexively created expanding and diffusing effects as well as intensifying the progress and the processes in the social workers’ practice and organisations. Not only became the research characterised of being participatory but also dialogical (DPAR). The processes of the conducted action research became metaphorically talked about as going on a cycling voyage tour riding in a peloton. In the dynamic flow of dialogical interplay the participants found the directions how to go on (with whom, when, where, how, with what and why) exploring and learning.
