An interactionist model: An answer or just a better question?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Summary: It has been argued that an interactionist approach illuminates the relationship between public issues and private troubles. However, the model has been fundamentally criticized as being theoretically empty. The value of the approach is examined by the analysis of a practice example. The basic criticisms of the model are confirmed but nevertheless it may offer a useful stepping-stone away from the rigidities of case-based practice.
