Make research training have meaning

Salma Siddique

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


AFTER REFLECTING ON the previous issue’s article by Pietro Cardile (2011) on his thoughts, suggestions and reflections on the state of the relationship between therapy and training, I wouldsuggest that TA training also needs to consider the current approaches to the teaching and application of research within its field. The teaching of research within the discipline of TA training seems poorly integrated. A number of trainees have asked me to point out the very basic information they need to know to pass their research module or complete the proposal assignment. Something is lost if this is how some trainees feel about research – that it is the ‘thing to get through’. I want trainees to not only seek a technical proficiency but also to be reflexive in growingtheir own knowledge and evidence base for contemporaryand meaningful practice.
