[Xmca-l] Re: Translating Ideas to Intervention

Cliff, the kind of distinctions which I was teasing out are important for *my* work, but I also know that other practices use different constellations of concepts, adapted to their objectives and context. The nuances and shades of meaning which characterise your distinctive approach are well within the spread of views and theories gathered under the banner of CHAT.

Many thanks, Andy. I've appreciated all of your messages, comments, and clarifications! In our work, we try to adhere to the advice of Price and Behrens (2003 , p. 222):

‘‘where no action step is contemplated without questioning about its theoretical significance and no speculation about underlying processes occurs without asking about its action

So the purpose of my question to the XMCA group was to ask about the action implications of the ideas they presented.

Cliff, I was impressed by that example and have no suggestions how you miight have done differently. Your concepts, your word meanings and your practices are evidently well aligned. My concern was primarily to clarify your concepts and word meanings relative to those I am familiar with, that's all. If you have an intervention which was *not* successful, then perhaps that would be an occasion to revisit concepts and discuss alterntive interventions?
