Becoming a psychotherapist: exploring different temporalities of knowledge development in a professional training program

Abstract : We study lived experience of individuals in learning situations, and generally proceed with a fine grained analysis of their understanding for time stretch lasting few tens of minutes. However, learning is not only a short term process. Therefore, we endeavour an empirical study in order to articulate two methods based on the same enactivist framework: the " course of action method " allowing to describe short-term dynamics, and the " life course of a practice method " , investigating lived experience during longer time spans. We are carrying out our study in a two years professional training program in psychotherapy, consisting in monthly seminars. We investigate the experience of three participants of a nine-person group. Re-situative interviews, in which participants are asked to retrieve and evoke their experience during the different moments of the seminar, allow us to explore long-term dynamics of knowledge development. Video-recordings and self-confrontation interviews about some sessions of the seminars will enable us to undertake a fine-grained analysis of short-term process of understanding.
