The data was gathered during this form of reflection following three consecutive improvisations. These initial talking-drawing reflections provided the material on which a further four reflective activities were carried out over the next three months. These activities were in the form of a dialogue between individual participants and the researcher, the language of the dialogue including the expressive modes of drawing, writing, poetry, and collage.
Consequently, seven independent streams of text (one from each of the seven participants) developed from the dialogues. In the latter part of the inquiry these texts were reviewed by the researcher to identify what might be understood about both the content of the inquiry, ‘the experience of improvising’ and the context of the inquiry, ‘the application of MIECAT procedures.’ This paper is the documenting of this inquiry—commencing with the improvisation and finishing with the researcher’s reflections.
