Example text

Being a good communicator and able to forge good relationships is a starting point, but it has to extend to include, for example, the capacity to establish a dialogue in difficult circumstances: to negotiate, mediate, set boundaries, challenge and influence. Constructive relationships may have to be developed with diverse and challenging clients, relatives, colleagues, managers, trainees, other professions, planners, politicians and often the media and the public. This requires, as we have argued, not only a good understanding of how others may operate but also a sensitive and well-tuned awareness of oneself.

The notion of evidence-based practice stems from this tradition (Muir Gray, 1997) and now forms the basis for policy planning and implementation, for professional practice and audit and for professional training and professional development. The call for evidence-based practice reflects a rational and, what some would describe as, a Western frame of reference. That does not make it right – or wrong – but it does give it a particular cultural ‘style’. Fernando (1991), in discussing mental health services, suggests that ‘style’ will affect the underlying assumptions and the nature of interventions: The goal of all Eastern religions and psychology is enlightenment, subjective experience and meditation.
