[The Study Days on reporting as an intervention method in Clinical Psychology] - Reflecting on reporting. The construction of meanings as research and intervention praxis.

Rosa Maria Paniccia, Fiammetta Giovagnoli


The case we want to argue in this article is that both in the area of social sciences and in daily living together, there is a great need for the construction of meanings and interpretations. Notice that we mean interpretations that are offered as such, unlike the acknowledgment of facts. We think in fact that the symbolic dimension of data, the interpretation of which is the basis for knowledge and intervention, must be respected and its importance must be known by both by the social sciences and by the social bodies that may make use of this data. These notes are being written after an interdisciplinary meeting between historians, anthropologists and clinical psychologists who have started a workshop on these issues. Before marking out the limits of this proposal and saying how we think it is connected to the process of reporting, we would like to present some travel experiences, which we will comment on after letting the reader start thinking about the insights and associations prompted by them.
