- Additional information
- Boehm was the lead author/researcher for the academic article for a European project group funded by ERASMUS+, which was the first of its kind to formulate a competency framework to support the training of multiprofessional working practices
in art and social work. (See Chapter 5.3 of the Handbook) It
a) articulated the cultural and critical contexts of relevant concepts and
b) Developed and proposed overarching criteria for learning frameworks which inform future training modules in the area of MPW and thus heavily influences the whole project’s outputs.
The content from the academic article, the project and the handbook has influenced national curricula in Spain, Estonia, Finland and UK, and more than 50 CPD workshops have been carried to ca 700 professionals from external not-for-profit
organisations and educators.
Each of the 4 partner organisations held workshops disseminating the work in the professional creative sector and embedding MPW work within professional practice. This research informed practices and the subsequent developed educational
framework, as well as a new competency framework, as laid out in the MOMU handbook, for which BOEHM was one of the co-authors.
The methodology carried out for the research element of this project included 1) qualitative and quantitative data from a four country survey of educators, artists, and social workers; 2) a literature review; 3) a terminological review and
differentiation within four EU countries; and 4) synthesis and development in a collaborative forum of international scholars and practitioners.
The handbook is the collection of both the research and practice-oriented elements from the project an includes critical insights and practical guidance of applying multiprofessional skills in training and educational environments, including key
conceptual models for multiprofessional teamwork, the CAST and ACCESS models, which were developed and co-created under BOEHM’s leadership of her research team during the project.
