Applied conversation analysis

In this article we discuss the value of applied conversation analysis for social work practice. Results from a doctorate research on ‘Attachment in Interaction are presented’. Data from this research stem from a larger project entitled Professional Parenting in Family Treatment Homes. We show how applied conversation analysis can be used to reveal good practices, clarify how these practices work interactionally, and to reclassify traditional concepts like attachment in interactional terms. We argue that applied conversation analysis is a good method to answer how questions, i.e. questions that, in our opinion, should be asked when doing applied research.
