    Resumé

    This article is based on a Danish research project with young people in vulnerable
    positions. Young people are involved throughout the research process, including the interpretation of material produced through interviews, and discussions on how reflections and conclusions from the research should be written up and disseminated. The article takes a methodological focus, considering general aims and methods of the research project, before turning to the elaboration on how poetic representations have been constructed and employed as a vehicle for certain kinds of participation, representation, and dialogue, of situated participants. The article includes a lengthy example of a poetic representation of one participant’s story, and the author comments on the potentials of ‘doing’ poetic representations as an example of writing in ways that challenges what sometimes goes unasked in participative social work research. The article moves to ‘trouble’ understandings of participative research as egalitarian and consensus-driven, and proposes a focus on the tensions and positioning of knowledge production.
