Abstract

This paper outlines the use of activity theory and the third spaces created in developmental workshop research as appropriate methodologies for reflection and change. A single case is presented of the use of physical mapping, narratives and activity theory to promote collaborative reflection and learning on collaborative practice in a group of managers in a multi-agency group in the children’s workforce in the UK. The paper concludes that active reflection is stimulated by activity theory allowing the development of collaborative practice in the group.
