This communication provides in-depth analyses of five local meetings between mental health practitioners. Those meetings took place in response to a Belgian reform of mental health care delivery, from January to June 2012. Mental health practitioners intended those meeting to agree on new work procedures used in activities of promotion of mental healthcare. This communication analyses the discussions and interaction processes through which mental health practitioners finally succeeded in agreeing on new work procedures. It particularly emphasizes that those procedures resulted from the very situated and contingent assemblage of different ideas, interests, and evidence expressed by the participants. [less ▲]

In this presentation, I suggest studying "the meetings" for themselves, by considering them as a topic for research and not as tool for doing researches on other topics as problem-solving and policy-making. By drawing on a sociological research on a Belgian reform of mental healthcare delivery, I argue that the concept of bracketing might be used to identify the forms and to analyse the various roles played by meetings, or what the meetings do to the organisational and policy work.

Object: this paper analyses inter-organisational meetings held in response to a reform of the Belgian mental health care system. It proposes to shift the researcher’s attention from the instrumental function attributed to meetings to the role they actually play in this reform. Aims: based on the observation that meetings frequently failed to reach their instrumental outcome, this paper first asks which other roles meetings might play and how. Second, it suggests that the concept of bracketing might be helpful in perceiving, describing and analysing the roles played by meetings. Methods: this paper relies on empirical material collected through semi-structured interviews, direct observation and documentary analyse. Excerpts from interviews and field notes of observation are used as a basis for analysing 4 specific meetings. These meetings have been selected according to their relevance to the research question of the role played by meetings and a set of criteria relating to the meeting type, participants, topic and context. Results: this paper demonstrates that, next to their instrumental function, meetings play at least three complementary roles, which are defined as expressive, representative and performative. It argues that these three roles of meetings are better understood by using the concept of bracketing in three ways: as a methodological, descriptive and analytical tool. [less ▲]

Dans ce chapitre, Sébastien Brunet et Frédéric Claisse proposent un retour critique sur Meeting of Minds, expérience hors du commun de conférence de citoyens sur les neurosciences, qui aura conjugué les efforts de 126 citoyens européens et l’expérience d’une dizaine d’instituts d’évaluation technologique, réunis à l’initiative de la Fondation Roi Baudouin et avec le soutien de la Commission europénne. Processus complexe et multi-dimensionnel, Meeting of Minds s’est finalement moins heurté aux difficultés pratiques et logistiques de la participation à échelle internationale (dans l’ensemble bien anticipées), qu’à ses propres ambivalences et contradictions. En revenant sur un épisode particulièrement emblématique de la deuxième convention européenne qui marquait le point culminant du processus, les auteurs mettent en évidence les tensions qui résultaient, d’une part, de l’ambivalence de l’expertise accordée aux citoyens et, d’autre part, de la focalisation excessive sur une méthodologie participative devenue par moments à elle-même sa propre fin. Le chapitre illustre ainsi les impasses de ce que les auteurs appellent une conception « performative » de la participation, caractérisée par l’indifférence à la production concrète des participants, dont la principale qualité est en réalité d’avoir été performée par le dispositif. Au lieu de servir d’outil d’exploration de controverse et de source d’enrichissement du processus de décision (dont Meeting of Minds était d’ailleurs déconnecté), la conférence de citoyens a paradoxalement fini par faire passer les neurosciences à l’arrière-plan pour ne plus « fabriquer » que du dispositif et de la participation.

Parenting support has been placed on the political agenda in Europe for the last decade (OECD, 2008, 2009 ; Eurofund, 2011). But a close look to the major discourse can reveal that the interest is very often linked to a compensatory vision of a so-called « deficiency » on behalf of some parents (social control). The symposium has proposed to explore the notion of « meeting places for children and parents » : their characteristics, the driven goals, the values shared by professionals . These places where parents can share « hic et nunc » their own experiences and expertise as parents (not in a preventive purpose) are considered as possible ways of questioning the compensatory approach. Characteristics of meeting places as learning communities have been displayed through a presentation of inspiring practices from different contexts: Italy, Flanders and Federation Wallonia-Brussels. Informal social networks among parents and children are an important source of parental support. Meeting places are settings where such informal networks and social cohesion are facilitated among families with diverse backgrounds. The staff (both professionals and volunteers) plays an important role in facilitating the informal contacts between parents and children. Their role as a “host” (instead of being pedagogical experts) demands specific individual competences and systemic conditions. [less ▲]

Objective: The objective was to create a new measure of everyday life functioning by developing a computerized real-life activity task where participants are asked to prepare a room for a meeting. Background: Difficulties in everyday life activities are core features of persons diagnosed with schizophrenia. However, everyday life functioning is usually evaluated with questionnaires, performance-based or observation assessments, all of which contain a number of limits. Method: Twenty-one individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia and 21 matched healthy controls completed the computerized meeting preparation task. Patients were also evaluated with an extensive cognitive battery and several measures of symptomatology and everyday life functioning. Results: Results showed that performance on the computerized task significantly differentiated patients and controls for a certain number of variables. These variables, summarized in a global score, were significantly correlated with both cognitive and everyday life functioning. Moreover, this composite score significantly predicted 39% of everyday life functioning, whereas a cognitive composite score only predicted 22%. In addition, when the meeting task composite score was combined with symptomatology and the cognitive composite score, these measures significantly predicted up to 73% of everyday life functioning. Conclusion: The findings suggest that the meeting preparation task provides a good indication of the level of everyday life functioning in patients with schizophrenia, and may be viewed as a valuable instrument in both an evaluation and remediation context.

To use Electroencephalography (EEG) and Magnetoencephalography (MEG) as functional brain 3D imaging techniques, identifiable distributed source models are required. The reconstruction of EEG/MEG sources rests on inverting these models and is ill-posed because the solution does not depend continuously on the data and there is no unique solution in the absence of prior in formation or constraints. We have described a general framework that can account for several priors in a common inverse solution. An empirical Bayesian framework based on hierarchical linear models was proposed for the analysis of functional neuroimaging data [Friston, K., Penny, W, Phillips, C., Kiebel, S., Hinton, G., Ashburner, J., 2002. Classical and BaN inference in neuroitnaging: theory. Neurolmage 16, 465-483] and was evaluated recently in the context of EEG [Phillips, C., Mattout, J., Rugg, M.D., Maquet, P., Friston, K., 2005. An empirical Bayesian solution to the source reconstruction problem in EEG. Neurolmage 24, 997-1011]. The approach consists of estimating the expected source distribution and its conditional variance that is constrained by an empirically determined mixture of prior variance components. Estimation uses Expectation-Maximization (EM) to give the Restricted Maximum Likelihood (ReML) estimate of the variance components (in terms of hyperparameters) and the Maximum A Posteriori (MAP) estimate of the source parameters. In this paper, we extend the framework to compare different combinations of priors, using a second level of inference based on Bayesian model selection. Using Monte- Carlo simulations, ReML is first compared to a classic Weighted Minimum Norm (WMN) solution under a single constraint. Then, the ReML estimates are evaluated using various combinations of priors. Both standard criterion and ROC-based measures were used to assess localization and detection performance. The empirical Bayes approach proved useful as: (1) ReML was significantly better than WMN for single priors; (2) valid location priors improved ReML source localization; (3) invalid location priors did not significantly impair performance. Finally, we show how model selection, using the log-evidence, can be used to select file best combination of priors. This enables a global strategy for multiple prior-based regularization of the MEG/EEG source reconstruction. (c) 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. [less ▲]
