  • "Becoming" a Professional

    'Becoming' is used in this interdisciplinary work as an emergent, iterative concept of professional identity formation. The conceptual framework of 'becoming', as well as the arguments in the book are intended to encourage professionals--and those engaged in their education--to reflect on what it means to be a 'professional' in the twenty-first century, an era dominated by the discourses of globalisation, 'new mangerialism', multiculturalism and deprofessionalisation. We live in a world where not only scholars, but also a better educated client base informed by technological innovations, have issued unprecedented challenges to the traditional professional ideal. The once paradigmatic identity of the superiority of the Anglo-American professional, grounded in an exclusive knowledge-base and an altruistic 'public-service' principle, are no longer tenable.The book will generate dialogue about the nature of professionalism through a multidisciplinary lens in chapters on medicine, nursing and teaching and in reference to social work, the clergy and engineering. Here, becoming a professional is a lifelong, extended process that constructs an individual's professional identity through formal education, workplace interactions and popular culture. It advocates the 'ongoing' modality of developing a professional self throughout one's professional life. What emerges from this work is a concept of becoming a professional that is quite different from the isolated, rugged, individualistic approach to traditional professional practice as represented in popular culture. It is a book for the reflective professional.

    In der Sonder- und Sozialpadagogik steht die demokratische Bildungs- und Erziehungskultur auf dem Prufstand. Anerkennung, Partizipation, Dialog und die Achtung der Kinder- und Menschenrechtskonventionen werden derzeit in der padagogischen Praxis zuruck gedrangt: sozialtechnologische 'Straf-Padagogiken' sowie 'Lob der Disziplin' bedienen den ordnungspolitischen Mainstream. Diese so gar nicht neue, sondern vielmehr antiquierte Erziehungskultur steht im Mittelpunkt dieses Bandes. In ihren Beitragen analysieren die Autorinnen und Autoren aus unterschiedlichen erziehungswissenschaftlichen Perspektiven die Komplexitat und Vielschichtigkeit dieser Entwicklung. Im ersten Teil wird die derzeitige Erziehungskultur unter dem Aspekt einer dem Humanismus und der Demokratie verpflichteten Padagogik betrachtet. Der zweite Teil vertieft das Spektrum der derzeitigen Kontroversen um die Praxis einer Konfrontativen Padagogik. Der dritte Teil widmet sich den gesellschaftskritischen Repliken auf (Un)Kulturen von Bildung und Erziehung. Zentraler Bezugspunkt der theorie- und praxisbezogenen Beitrage ist das Recht jedes Kindes und Jugendlichen auf eine gewaltfreie Erziehung.
