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.
