Generative mechanisms in social work practice: how they differ from other types of mechanisms
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Social Work.
2013 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The focus of my presentation is generative mechanisms, a basic concept and phenomenon within the meta-theoretical perspective of critical realism. Briefly, a generative mechanism is as a trans-empirical but real existing entity, making events occur. Mechanisms are mostly possible to grasp only indirectly by analytical work (theory building), based however on empirical observations. More specifically I will concentrate on generative mechanisms in social work practice, and how they differ from other types of generative mechanisms.
