This collection has been written by eminent members of the systemic communities to inspire reflexive practitioners and offer leading edge systemic research methodology with innovative approaches to systemic practice research. These practices of inquiry arise out of a comfortable systemic weaving of social constructionist, collaborative dialogical and narrative practices in the fields of therapy, consultation, teaching, supervision, leadership, organisational development, community work and activism.

Reflexivity runs through this collection like a rainbow thread connecting the reader to different forms of practitioner research. The book connects theoretical, ethical and technical challenges for the practitioner-researcher offering a theorethical grounding in systemic inquiry alongside innovative examples of approaches to systemic inquiry. These writings encourage practitioners to find approaches to practice research rather than feel they must adopt existing methods from modernist academic discourse. This book is written for anyone interested in inquiring into reflexive and relational practice and has particular appeal to doctoral and masters research students. It is of practical and theoretical help in forging connections between systemic practice, systemic inquiry and the wider field of post-positivist qualitative inquiry.
