Coaching as a social ritual: acting on people in a liberal-individualistic society (parenting, education, mental health care)

Descripción del proyecto

Entrenamiento social fuera del campo

Algunos de los mejores entrenadores se pueden encontrar fuera del campo. Se trata de profesores, profesionales sanitarios y padres, quienes capacitan a los demás para producir los cambios necesitan por sí mismos. Es entrenamiento como ritual social. El proyecto CoachingRituals, financiado con fondos europeos, estudiará este aspecto del entrenamiento. Desde una perspectiva comparativa y empíricamente fundamentada, el proyecto convertirá el ritual del entrenamiento, su juego de lenguaje, aplicaciones y efectos, en medidores destacados de cómo actuamos hoy en día en función del comportamiento y las emociones de los demás. Habrá tres niveles de análisis: un análisis a nivel macro de las transformaciones del entorno moral, un análisis a nivel meso de las prácticas institucionales y de los agentes y un análisis a nivel micro de los efectos del ritual de entrenamiento. El proyecto también arrojará luz sobre las tensiones relacionadas con el entrenamiento y sobre cómo resolverlas.

Objetivo

The major goal of this project is to establish a greater understanding of the pervasive and elusive practice of coaching (empowering people so that they produce themselves the changes they need) as a ritual action which is specific to liberal-individualistic societies that support the idea of a hidden potential in each of us.

This project will focus on the ways the coaching logic transforms three specific common social activities (parenting, teaching and mental health care) that have traditionally been characterized by an asymmetry between a person in a lower position and a person in a higher position. The multiplication of coaching devices in these fields however signals a loss of legitimacy of this feature. Through a comparative and empirically-grounded perspective, we will make the coaching ritual, its language game, applications and effects, into salient analysers of how we act nowadays on other peoples’ behaviour and emotions.

We will combine three levels of analysis: the macro-level analysis of the transformations of the moral environment, the meso-level analysis of the institutional and actors’ practices and the micro-level analysis of coaching ritual’s effects. Macro-level will require an international comparison between the United Kingdom, Italy, and France/French-speaking Belgium. Meso and micro-level will focus on the last area.

The study will also combine three methods: a comparative content analysis of controversies, participant observations of coaching performances in 6 different contexts, and semi-structured interviews with around 100 participants (coaching promotors; parents, teachers, caregivers providing coaching; adolescents, students and care receivers to which this logic is applied).

By taking the coaching ritual seriously and keeping at distance celebration or criticism, this project seeks not only to produce new theoretical knowledge, but also to shed light on coaching-related tensions and raise awareness among stakeholders.
