Community Practice Researchers as Reflective Learners

Show Summary Details


The article outlines a process for community practice research as a reflective process. Through the interplay of key concepts associated with subjective research–personal engagement, experiential affinity and parallel struggles–and transcribed interviews with community practitioners, the authors elaborate the subjective community researcher posture. Subjectivity contributes to the researchers’ position as learners within the research process. The research team plays a key role in reflecting on the effects of the research on participants.
