By Frederik Mispelblom Beyer

Livre de chevet autant que boussole pour gros temps, cet ouvrage affronte et dénoue tout ce qui rend si insaisissables les contours et le contenu concret de l'activité d'encadrement.

Fruit de vingt années d'enquêtes, ce livre aussi rigoureux que plaisant à lire dégage les grands déterminants d'un métier pas tout à fait comme les autres, mais dont los angeles compréhension contribue à éclairer tous les autres.
Prenant le contre pied des discours fatalistes (on ne peut rien changer, soyons du côté des plus forts et de l. a. mise en oeuvre du « nouveau administration ») ou rageurs (tous unis contre, et vivement que tout cela casse !), ce livre s'inscrit dans los angeles point of view d'une éthique de l. a. responsabilité personnelle.

Frederik Mispelblom Beyer est professeur de sociologie à l'université d'Evry, chercheur au Centre Pierre Naville.

Entre le marteau et l'écume. Encadrer c'est ferrailler. Encadrer : c'est se « débrouiller » entre los angeles pression d'en « haut » et celle d'en « bas ». Au coeur des batailles d'orientations. Encadrer : c'est tenter de dire ce qu'on fait et où l'on va. Encadrer : c'est tenter d'unifier les orientations du travail. Encadrer : c'est tenter d'élaborer des compromis productifs. Des actes de parole aux paroles en actes. Encadrer : c'est mettre des orientations dans des cadres opérationnels. end générale : un métier most unlikely ?
