This thesis integrates the reflective components of action research, appreciative inquiry and autobiographical methods. Through the thesis, a model of dissemination of research in the fields of clinical and counselling psychology is presented. Its key components include collaboration and collaborative/relational reflection, appreciative inquiry and the researcher-practitioner/reflective-practitioner framework. Other important elements include collaborations that link research, practice and reflection, the identifying and supporting the development of potential leaders, leading research projects and training and conferences. Public Works such as the “Up Skilling the Specialist Mental Health Workforce in Psychological Practice Skills” and The European Journal of Counselling Psychology are used as foundations for this model. The thesis concludes with action planning for the future as part of the action research and appreciative inquiry forward spirals of planning, action, reflection, planning; this includes developments in the field of independent practice of clinical and counselling psychology.
