Working on a current (2010/2011), small-scale, auto/biographical research project with a multiagency team who seek to offer 'collaborative advantage' (a principle promoted in recent multiagency practice) on behalf of students with Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, an interpretive hermeneutic has been employed in exploring whether something of the narrated life experiences and reflexive learning of co-participants ('Narrators') actually enables such transformational work. Here the recent history of agency and multiagency collaboration in England is briefly examined along with certain ideas and sometimes dissonant discourses. The multiagency narratives are explored against this backdrop and in the context of examined lives in time; offering themes of a local and universal nature which may help illustrate how multiagency intervention achieves change and improves value, meaning and belonging for students with SEBD. In a modest way, and in a true spirit of collaborative advantage, it is hoped that the study may also enhance the reflexivity of the Narrators, benefitting the students with whom they work and perhaps proving of interest, use and inspiration to others working in the field.
