More recently, Bond et al. (1998) provide an interesting example of what Beresford might call ‘democratic’ research undertaken collaboratively by practitioners and service-users.

But, unfortunately, the results of quantitative research are still frequently treated (by politicians and organisational managers, for example) as though they actually do provide ‘objective facts’ about a situation, and thus constitute the basis for prescription and control. g. Giddens, 1976; Habermas, 1978).

Conclusion In conclusion, then, action research tries to foster not only a model of research which arises naturally out of our practical experience of work, but a model of work which in itself presents opportunities for critical, constructive reflection. In one sense, at one level, we engage in critical reflection all the time (as we try to formulate effective responses to complex and rapidly shifting situations). But in another sense we don’t. Work is arduous, hours are long, external forces seem to exert a disempowering constraint, and gradually, in order to survive, we slip into routines – comfortably familiar ways of doing things and of thinking about what we do.
