Quand la partition se met en musique ou les émotions des professionnels de la coordination

Abstract : Since the 1980s new jobs in the public sector have emerged. Technicians and coordinators implement policy across defined regions. Project methodology and networking experts are in constant contact with the main players in the social field and with local councilors. They are committed and devoted to their work. The lack of regulation around social professions means that their work is shaped by their individual experience and personal values. There has been limited research into the personal emotions in social professions. This dissertation will explore the emotions of these professionals and the influence they have on policy decisions through interviews with workers in the field. The way in which these emotions are used to influence people to take part in collective projects will also be considered. Through this dissertation, social professionals will attempt to share the emotions that they have and how this impacts their working practices. Emotions like pleasure and enthusiasm are often expressed, whereas other emotions seem forbidden as they are viewed as negative by society. Public policy makers face a dilemma between knowledge and emotions. They are required to be an expert in their field and take an objective stance, whilst balancing this with their personal experiences and emotions. This is a challenge!
