Please see below for a list of speakers and statements.
Mick Cooper is a Professor of Counselling Psychology at the University of Roehampton and a chartered psychologist. Statement: '“Horses for courses”: As researchers, each of us needs to find the epistemology that works right for us'.
Rosie Rizq is a Counselling Psychologist and Professor of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the University of Roehampton. Statement: 'Who is the subject supposed to know about what epistemology works for whom? What are the limits of our authority as researchers?'
John Rae is a Reader in Psychology, Dept of Psychology, Univ of Roehampton. Statement: 'I’ll argue that researchers have a responsibility to be clear about what kind of contribution to knowledge their research can make, and to be mindful of the how they communicate what they are doing.  I will question the coherence and helpfulness of the idea that a researcher can choose a theory of knowledge.'
Petra Kagleder is a PsychD student and researches the perception of the teaching and learning of epistemology within UK Counselling Psychology programmes. Statement: 'What works from whom’ implies choice between research epistemologies. How much choice is there actually though, given the dominance of Western knowledge bases and epistemologies?'
