Knotworking: conceptualising effective practice

Many years of practising in interdisciplinary teams, teaching integrated practice, and engaging in practice research has led Christa to critically reflect on the dimensions of effective Social Work practice. This presentation suggests that effective practice is dependent on a deep understanding of context and on significant engagement across mono-professional silos, fragmented services, and competitive and uncertain funding. It highlights the benefits of producing and using evidence to impact practice, and the challenges of defining good evidence and measuring effective practice. Referring to the Greek legend of the Gordian knot and building on Engeström’s concept of knotworking, Christa encourages creative solutions to solve the intricate challenges of effective practice.
