DANASWAC | Discourse And Narrative Approaches to Social Work And Counselling

___________________

Themes of the DANASWAC to research, writing and practice are:

  1. Seeing the entities as social constructed rather than ready formed
  2. Importance of a focus on everyday practices, drawing on traditions of discourse and narrative theory and research
  3. Promoting discourse, narrative and ethnographic approaches in social work research, practice and education
  4. Promoting a dialogue between ideas and evidence, when research data in being analysing
  5. Research to address the dilemmas of practitioners and clients, concerned to identify, examine and debate what is seen as ‘good practice’ and ‘success’ as well as ‘mistakes’ and ‘traps’
  6. Widen what counts as ‘evidence’ in assessing practice
  7. Influenced by constructionist and interactional theories, promoting dialogues between clients and professionals in agencies in which there is dialogue between workers and managers, and educators and students
  8. Assisting practitioners to describe and publicly present their work in their own words, thus resisting formats which restrict workers from discovering their own practice
  9. Assisting clients to give a voice to points of view
  10. Encourage practitioners and clients to become researchers to overcome the distinctions between researchers and subjects of research, as well as supporting research at a distant where appropriate
  11. Promote multi-disciplinary and multi-professional discussions to generate new ideas
  12. Promoting international collaboration

  1. Appréhender les entités/objets du monde comme des constructions sociales plutôt que les chosifier comme des données immédiates
  2. Porter attention aux pratiques quotidiennes, au moyen d’approches discursives et narratives
  3. Promouvoir les approches discursives, narratives et ethnographiques dans la recherche, la pratique et la formation en Travail social
  4. Ancrer les théories dans des données empiriques
  5. Aborder les dilemmes des praticiens et des usagers, en vue d’identifier, d’étudier et de débattre ce qui est considéré comme une « bonne pratique » et une « réussite », mais aussi une « erreur » et un « échec »
  6. Consolider ce qui compte comme « évidence / preuve / donnée factuelle » dans les pratiques évaluatives
  7. Promouvoir le dialogue entre usagers et professionnels au sein des dispositifs, entre travailleurs sociaux et décideurs au sein des organisations, entre professeurs et étudiants, en s’appuyant sur les théories interactionnelles et constructivistes
  8. Soutenir les praticiens engagés dans la description et la présentation publique de leur travail dans leur propre langage, de manière à résister aux formats/approches imposés qui limitent les démarches de découverte des travailleurs sociaux portant sur leurs propres pratiques
  9. Appuyer les usagers afin qu’ils fassent entendre leurs voix et leurs points de vue
  10. Encourager les praticiens et les usagers à devenir des chercheurs de manière à dépasser les distinctions entre enquêteurs et sujets enquêtés, tout en soutenant des recherches distanciées chaque fois que nécessaire
  11. Promouvoir des discussions multidisciplinaires et multi-professionnelles en vue de générer des idées et des théories nouvelles
  12. Promouvoir la collaboration internationale

Analysing Social Work Communication

«This book (…) focuses on the ways social workers carry out their work in everyday organisational conversations with clients and other professionnals, and provides tools to analyse these conversations in great details» (Hall et al., 2014: 1-2).

Language Practices in Social Work
«(…) the social work profession may gain from developing the skills and frameworks for examining the nature of talk and interaction. In this way their sensitivity to their own communication with clients and other professionals becomes an object for examination and discussion» (Hall et al., 2006: 170-1).

Constructing Clienthood

Our «(…) interest is turned to the everyday practices of social work in which client categories are produced, maintained, modified and broken» (Hall et al., 2003: 13).

«Social constructionism, especially in the ethnomethodologically tuned traditions presented in this book, deals with the study of interaction (…). The study of interaction from the angle of constructing social reality brings into focus the use of language» (Hall et al., 2003: 17).
