Hammond, Ralph (2010) Using Collective Memory Work to Investigate the Lived Experience of Physiotherapists. In: Narrative, Memory and Ordinary Lives. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, pp. 39-52. ISBN 978-1-86218-090-1

This paper explains how and why I plan to consider the identity of physiotherapy. My intention is to harness self-and group-reflection and the use of reason in a society of mixed values and opinions. I hope to generate mutual understandings of how individual physiotherapy professional identities are constructed, explicate some of the taken-for-granted notions within practice, and through this to enlighten and empower; that is, to generate the possibility of individual change through action based on an increased recognition of the existing relationships and praxis that individuals, and the profession, work within. The methodology will be collective memory work, based on a philosophical position of Habermasian communicative rationality
