More About This Title Becoming a Practitioner-Researcher


Employing a Gestalt approach that places investigators in the center of their own practice, this is an indispensable guide for anyone undertaking inquiries in complex or changing organizational settings. Aiming to build a picture of awareness by prioritizing how people perceive, feel, and act, this resource provides entries within an ongoing practitioner-research journal throughout the text. Mini case studies to help clarify key points, as well as three extended case studies designed to illuminate the real-life drama of being a researcher are also included.
