Chapter 7 Conclusions and prospects
Restricted access

The integrative final chapter explains how the approach to reflexive practice set out in the book is similar to others, but that self-reflexivity is given the primary position. It is from that perspective that other kinds of reflexivity are considered, through looking at the self (embodied and emotional reflexive practice) and looking from the self (rational and relational reflexive practice) to support critical engagement. The chapter argues for an integrated perspective on reflexive practice that brings embodied, emotional, rational and relational levels into a pattern moving between the future and the past, asking "what I should do next?" in the moments and months of our studies, while also asking "how did I come to make those choices?", in some cases long after the research has been concluded. Prospects for future research, which could provide additional nuance to how we go about reflexive practice, are also presented.
