Link to publisher version (URL)
Introduction In this chapter, we, the authors, would like you to accompany us on a journey of exploration into the complex concept of facilitation as it applies within systematic practice development (PD), which we refer to as enablement. We hope to inspire readers to explore their own experiences and understandings of facilitation. To help prepare readers for the journey through this chapter, we begin by briefing identifying our key intentions. We plan to emphasise the following: Person centredness as a key concept underpinning every aspect of facilitation practice. The theoretical frameworks about person centredness that clarify the role of facilitation in PD. Other specific enabling factors, attributes and consequences of enablement derived from practitioner data informing a two-phase process of concept analysis. In addition, we hope this chapter will inspire readers to develop key insights into their own facilitation practice that they may then test out for themselves.
