About the Author

Bairbre Redmond is Vice Principal for Teaching and Learning in the College of Human Sciences at University College Dublin, Ireland. She was one of the inaugural winners of the President's Teaching Award at UCD and her work on the development and evaluation of innovative reflective teaching approaches has received international recognition. She is currently carrying out longitudinal research on the changing professional experiences of social workers at the beginning of their professional practice.


'This book is a very impressive piece of work. It tackles an issue that has been very central to the training of human service practitioners. This book is suitable for both beginning and advanced professionals in that it provides an excellent point for discussion in graduate training, staff development and supervision. Redmond is to be applauded for the way she has integrated her view of pedagogy (reflective practice) and actual application with graduate students.' Robert Moroney, Arizona State University, USA 'Reflective practice is one way for social workers to break out of the "taken for granted" approach to practice and Redmond's book is a valuable and creative addition to the debate, giving as it does practical ideas and encouragement to think about the way we deliver social work education.' British Journal of Social Work '...offers a very readable account of designing and using a new reflective teaching and learning model...would be a useful text for learning disability students; students studying reflection; teachers using reflective techniques; educators of health and social care teachers...It could also provide good case study material and rich dialogue for those involved in inter-professional education.' Learning in Health and Social Care 'Redmond provides students of reflective practice with a significant resource in this text, not least of which is a very detailed and immensely valuable review of the literature...a very thorough text...' Social Work Review 'This book addresses an important need in the area of reflective practice. The account is highly engaging for educators and students alike and the overview of the field is commanding yet grounded. It should prove compulsory reading for any educator who is seriously concerned with undertaking reflective teaching and learning.' Jan Fook, University of Southampton, UK 'This insightful and scholarly book moves our knowledge of reflection and reflective practice a huge step forward by building on research into the experiences of service users and practitioners and using this as a basis for the development of original theory for learning and practice in the social work and health professions.' Imogen Taylor, University of Sussex, UK '...thoughtful, as well as thought-provoking, and stimulates a listening/questioning approach to practice.' Public Health - Journal of the Royal Institute of Public Health
