What does participation in the case studies project mean for one's professionalism?

Hanneke Muthert, Jacqueline Weeda

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


The authors explore several common ingredients and critical issues that were identified by a case study research community in mental health care. Common ingredients include abstinence from judgment, bridging periodes of waiting, using rituals and developing imaginative forms. Critical challenges pertain to the nature of proximity and of goal orientation, determining the body of knowledge for chaplaincy and accessing narratives for research.
