AbstractThe professional is also a human being. This paper explores the complementary and contradictory relation between biography and vocation in the history of a nurse who became a social work manager, as revealed in a biographic-narrative interview. It touches on the difficulties of providing insights to the interviewee in the form of feedback in a case-study paper of this kind, interpreting this difficulty through the concept of 'defended subjectivity', and on the theory-in-use in social work and professional training.
