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, contextualised and synergistic. 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. * 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, healthcare professionals and students.
