Professions and professionalisation

Jane Callaghan, Thomas Teo (Editor)

Research output: Contribution to Book/Report typesChapter

Abstract

The notion of ‘The Professional’ emerged in the mid 19th century, tied intimately to the rise of the middle classes (Friedson, 1970). In this entry, I will consider briefly the history and rise of the profession, and discuss critical perspectives on the constructs of professionalisation, professionalism and The Professional. I will explore the analysis of professions as social institutions, and will also consider critically the construction of professional identities and the production of the ‘Professional Psychologist’
