Abstract:This paper presents a follow-up to an earlier paper (Paterson et al 2005) on the topic of judgement artistry. Here the expertise literature is reviewed and the research findings related to developing judgement artistry are presented. Experts use cognitive, metacognitive and humanistic aspects of professional artistry to make highly skilled micro-, macro- and meta-judgements that are optimal for the given circumstances of the client and the context. The professional practice judgement artistry (PPJA) model presented in the earlier paper makes a unique contribution to professional development by offering a creative and challenging perspective on expertise. Finally, the overall research approach is critiqued, considering issues of credibility and rigour, and suggestions for future research are provided.
