Abstract:
As a social worker I had been upset that literature about social work denied or distorted the realities of doing social work. As a practitioner researcher I asked social workers to talk to me m interviews and audio diaries, about their work. Their accounts display their knowledge in practice as an embodied, rational and social achievement that explodes technical categories of mind/body, rational/irrational, objective/subjective.
