Hindrance of Trans-sector or Trans-disciplinary Communication and its Resolution Using Structural-constructivism

ARAKAWA Ayumu & SATO Tatsuya
Abstract:
With the increase in field psychology, psychologists have more opportunities to communicate with a man of deeds (trans-sector) or researchers from other disciplines (trans-disciplinary). However, researchers find it difficult to talk about their research with practitioners or other researchers for several reasons, including differences in (1) the amount of theory, (2) the power structure, (3) goals across sectors (publish research or solve clinical problems), (4) accountability, (5)perspective (internal or external), and (6) attitudes to communication. To overcome these difficulties, we suggest using structural - constructivism (Saijo, 2005) and devising "alternative stories". Structural - constructivism is a theory that solves conflicts between disciplines by combining each researcher's interests and assertions. An "alternative story" is a method that combines several assertions into narrative stories. Although structural-constructivism is needed to consider the opinions of other sectors, it is also a useful theory for trans-sector or trans- disciplinary communication.


Keywords: trans-sector, trans-discipline, structural-constructivism, alternative story
