His career spans both academic and clinical contexts, reflecting his interest in pursuing knowledge and practice that is both academically and professionally integrated.

Research

Over the last 12 years, Professors Kathleen Galvin and Les Todres have been developing a coherent programme that integrates health-related philosophy with qualitative research. This programme is summarised in their book: Caring and Well-Being: A lifeworld approach (Routledge, 2013), This focus has been taken up by other researchers, educators and practitioners both within Bournemouth University as well as nationally and internationally.

Aims of this research programme: 1.The first aim of the programme is to derive insights in response to the question “what makes people feel “more human” or “less human” when engaging in health and social care systems and interactions? We have found that everyday people intuitively understand what we mean when asking them this question. Also, the question does in fact have a rich philosophical heritage. 2. The second aim of the programme is to apply these insights in practice and education. This second aim has potential to generate multiple applications These aims have been applied to the following areas: : older person care, mental health, phenomenological research methods, embodied enquiry, poetic enquiry, theories of well-being and quality of life, and existential and integrative psychotherapy (see publications)..
