The terms 'critical reflection' and 'reflective practice' are at the heart of modern healthcare. But what do they really mean? Building on its ground-breaking predecessor, entitled Critical Reflection for Nursing and the Helping Professions, this heavily revised second edition analyses and explores reflection. It presents a structured method that will enable you to both challenge and develop your own practice. Full of clear and practical guidance, it includes: - real-life case studies to illustrate the significance of reflection to practice - a detailed framework for understanding and producing reflective writing - chapters on the role of reflection in supervision and research - 'reflective moments' - activities encouraging independent reflection. Expanded to meet the needs of all healthcare practitioners, this text redefines self-evaluation as a catalyst for personal and professional development. It is the essential guide to critical reflection for all students, academics and practitioners.

Table of Contents

Critical Reflection and the Emergence of Professional Knowledge.- Knowledge and Practice.- Models and Frameworks for Critical Reflection.- Understanding Reflective Writing.- Strategies for Reflective Writing.- Clinical Supervision and Reflective Practice.- Group Supervision.- Reflection-in-action.- Using Reflection as Tool for Research.- Education and the Reflective Practitioner.
