Overview

Reflective practice is internationally acknowledged as a significant approach to developing professional practice across health care professions. Becoming a Reflective Practitioner is a practical guide to using reflection both within curriculum and everyday clinical practice.

This completely revised fourth edition uses an even more reflective style, inviting and encouraging the reader to participate in a dialogue with the content. It develops Christopher Johns’ particular approach to reflective practice through the six dialogical movements and the development of narrative and performance.

The book features examples taken from everyday practice, which reveal reflection as something lived rather than just a theoretical concept and demonstrate the significant impact of reflection on realising desirable practice. The title also explores areas of key significance for professional health care curricula and development, including the real meaning of fundamental concepts such as "holistic" and "caring".
