'Becoming' a professional : an interdisciplinary analysis of professional learning /

by Scanlon, Lesley (ed.).

Publisher: Dordrecht ; London Springer 2011Description: x, 261 p. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: "Becoming" is used in this interdisciplinary work as an emergent, iterative concept of professional identity formation. The conceptual framework of "becoming", as well as the arguments in the book are intended to encourage "professionals" and those engaged in their education - to reflect on what it means to be a "professional" in the twenty-first century, an era dominated by the discourses of globalisation, "new mangerialism", multiculturalism and deprofessionalisation. We live in a world where not only scholars, but also a better educated client base informed by technological innovations, have issued unprecedented challenges to the traditional professional ideal. The once paradigmatic identity of the superiority of the Anglo-American professional, grounded in an exclusive knowledge-base and an altruistic "public-service" principle, are no longer tenable. The book will generate dialogue about the nature of professionalism through a multidisciplinary lens in chapters on medicine, nursing and teaching and in reference to social work, the clergy and engineering. Here, becoming a professional is a lifelong, extended process that constructs an individual's professional identity through formal education, workplace interactions and popular culture. It advocates the "ongoing" modality of developing a professional self throughout one?s professional life. What emerges from this work is a concept of becoming a professional that is quite different from the isolated, rugged, individualistic approach to traditional professional practice as represented in popular culture. It is a book for the reflective professional. ; Contents: 1.`Becoming' a Professional / Lesley Scanlon -- 2.Becoming As an Appropriate Metaphor for Understanding Professional Learning / Phil Hodkinson -- 3.Learning to Be -- At Work / David Beckett -- 4.Higher Education and Becoming a Professional / Madeleine Abrandt Dahlgren -- 5.Becoming Authentic Professionals: Learning for Authenticity / Gloria Dall'Alba -- 6.White Coats, Handmaidens and Warrior Chiefs: The Role of Filmic Representations in Becoming a Professional / Lesley Scanlon -- 7.Becoming a Medical Professional / Alan Bleakley -- 8.Professional Practice and Doctoral Education: Becoming a Researcher / Alison Lee -- 9.Becoming a Professional Doctor / Kirsty Foster -- 10.Becoming a Professional Nurse / Sandie Bredemeyer -- 11.Teacher Professional Becoming: A Practice-Based, Actor-Network Theory Perspective / Dianne Mulcahy -- 12.And the Conclusion for Now Is ...? / Lesley ScanlonAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Publisher: Underdale, S.A. University of South Australia. Australian Centre for Child Protection 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography: p. 63-64Summary: Child abuse and neglect, and their consequences for children, their families and carers, are issues which regularly confront psychologists in their daily work. Given the magnitude of these problems in our community, the Australian Psychological Society (APS) believes it is vital to ensure that psychologists are well equipped with the knowledge and skills to protect and nurture vulnerable children and their families. The Australian Centre for Child Protection in collaboration with the Australian Psychological Society sent a purpose developed curriculum mapping survey to 37 universities that offered Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited programs in 2008. Survey responses provided information about undergraduate, fourth year and postgraduate psychology programs across most States and Territories of Australia. Results of the study showed that students in most accredited psychology programs were exposed to some child protection related content as part of their undergraduate, fourth year, or postgraduate education.Availability: (1)
