    Embodied Enquiry: Phenomenological Touchstones for Research, Psychotherapy and Spirituality.Les Todres - 2007 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    Drawing on a particular emphasis within the phenomenological tradition as exemplified by Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Eugene Gendlin, this book considers the role of the lived body as a way of knowing and being. The author, a psychologist, psychotherapist and qualitative researcher pursues this theme within three practical contexts that illustrate some of the nuances of embodied enquiry: qualitative research, psychotherapy, spirituality. The three sections of the book also provide examples of how embodied enquiry is not just a philosophical perspective but (...)

    Lifeworld-Led Healthcare: Revisiting a Humanising Philosophy That Integrates Emerging Trends. [REVIEW]Les Todres, Kathleen Galvin & Karin Dahlberg - 2006 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 10 (1):53-63.
    In this paper, we describe the value and philosophy of lifeworld-led care. Our purpose is to give a philosophically coherent foundation for lifeworld-led care and its core value as a humanising force that moderates technological progress. We begin by indicating the timeliness of these concerns within the current context of citizen-oriented, participative approaches to healthcare. We believe that this context is in need of a deepening philosophy if it is not to succumb to the discourses of mere consumerism. We thus (...)

    Lifeworld-Led Healthcare is More Than Patient-Led Care: An Existential View of Well-Being. [REVIEW]Karin Dahlberg, Les Todres & Kathleen Galvin - 2009 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 12 (3):265-271.
    In this paper we offer an appreciation and critique of patient-led care as expressed in current policy and practice. We argue that current patient-led approaches hinder a focus on a deeper understanding of what patient-led care could be. Our critique focuses on how the consumerist/citizenship emphasis in current patient-led care obscures attention from a more fundamental challenge to conceptualise an alternative philosophically informed framework from where care can be led. We thus present an alternative interpretation of patient-led care that we (...)

    Phenomenology as Embodied Knowing and Sharing: Kindling Audience Participation.Kathleen Galvin & Les Todres - 2012 - Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology 12 (sup2):1-9.
    We are particularly interested in how poetry and phenomenological research come together to increase understanding of human phenomena. We are further interested in how these more aesthetic possibilities of understanding can occur within a community context, that is the possibility of a process in which understanding is shared through an ongoing process of participation. In this way phenomenologically-oriented understandings may meaningfully speak of that which is common between us as well as that which may be uniquely lived for each of (...)

    Humanising Forces: Phenomenology in Science; Psychotherapy in Technological Culture.Les Todres - 2002 - Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology 2 (1):1-11.
    One of the concerns of the existential-phenomenological tradition has been to examine the human implications of living in a world of proliferating technology. The pressure to become more specialised and efficient has become a powerful value and quest. Both contemporary culture and science enables a view of human identity which focuses on our 'parts' and the compartmentalisation of our lives into specialised 'bits'. This is a kind of abstraction which Psychology has also, at times, taken in its concern to mimic (...)

    The Wound That Connects: A Consideration of “Narcissism” and the Creation of Soulful Space.Les Todres - 2004 - Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology 4 (1):1-12.
    This article develops an existential perspective on what has been called ‘narcissism’. Using both the psychoanalytic tradition and the literary myth of Narcissus as ‘touchstones’, it unfolds a view of existential dilemmas and possibilities that are announced by this discourse. As such, it seeks to clarify the existential task of embodying human vulnerability – a journey that is potentially the source and depth of human compassion. With the help of the perspectives of A. H. Almaas and Eugene Gendlin, the phenomenon (...)

    Facilitating Nourished Scholarship Through Cohort Supervision in a Professional Doctorate Programme.Eloise Cj Carr, Kathleen Theresa Galvin & Les Todres - 2010 - Encyclopaideia: Journal of Phenomenology and Education 27.
    Nel corso degli ultimi 20 anni c’è stata una espansione globale in materia di istruzione dottorale e in particolare di ‘dottorati professionali’. Difficoltà nell’avanzamento e nel completamento diventano sempre più il centro dell’attenzione per tutti i tipi di dottorato. È stato riconosciuto che una serie di fattori al di là di quelli prettamente demografici potrebbe influire sulla possibilità di completare gli studi. C’è ancora molto da imparare sul motivo per cui l’avanzamento e il completamento del dottorato sono così impegnativi. In (...)

    Exploring the Online Health Information Seeking Experiences of Older Adults.Joanne Mayoh, Les Todres & Carol S. Bond - 2011 - Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology 11 (2):1-13.
    In this article we explore how the experience of searching for Online Health Information becomes a meaningful activity in the lives of older adults living with chronic health conditions. A descriptive phenomenological approach was adopted to contribute to the overall understanding of individuals’ lived experiences of OHI-seeking through an exploration of the consciousness of the experiencer. This article provides rich experiential descriptions that have the potential to make a contribution toward healthcare practice within the UK by providing healthcare professionals with (...)
