Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This is a practical and accessible guide to help nurses and non-nurses develop skills in reflective practice. It provides advice on how to get started and how to write reflectively as well as how to use the practice in everyday situations.
Purpose: The purpose is to introduce reflective practice to those unfamiliar with it and to provide a guide to develop and/or refine reflective practice skills.
Audience: The audience includes nursing students at the undergraduate and master's levels, practitioners from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, as well as teachers, managers, mentors, and professionals from other disciplines.
Features: The nine chapters have titles such as "An Introduction to Reflection," "Developing the Skills for Reflective Practice," and "Help to Get You Started." Chapters are revised and updated from the third edition. There is a new chapter on group reflection and chapter 3 includes exercises for reflection on one's own, with a partner, and with a group. There are helpful tips in each chapter on facilitating techniques for reflective practice and thinking points. Also included are problems with the assessment of reflection.
Assessment: This book provides extensive information about reflective practice and practical ways to develop those skills. It is not a quick read, as reflection and thought is needed to understand and comprehend the depth and breadth of reflective practice. The exercises and thought-provoking sections are beneficial in helping novices and others in their journey to become reflective practitioners.
From the Publisher

“This is a cracking book for anyone wanting to gain an insight into reflective practice.” (Nursing Standard, 4 July 2012)

From reviews of the third edition:

'This excellent book provides useful guidance on the use of reflection in practice.... 'This book is well written and structured so that it is straight-forward for the reader to make sense of a complex but essential aspect of the role of the mentor. It would be a helpful addition to any nursing library.'
Primary Health Care

'a useful guide to reflection and demonstrates how reflection on practice can support the development of nursing knowledge and our understanding of practice.... The text will appeal to a wide audience within the nursing profession and is to be recommended.'
Journal of Advanced Nursing

From reviews of the second edition

'…an excellent investment in any nurses’ library portfolio.'
Journal of Advanced Nursing

'An extremely welcome addition to nursing's literature on thoughtful, knowledgeable practice'
Nursing Times

'This is an excellent practical guide to reflective practice…I would highly recommend this book to all practice teachers and students.'
Journal of Practice Nursing

'The use of practical examples throughout, written in an easily accessible style, contribute to an interesting and highly motivating text… For qualified nurses who are interested, but as yet unfamiliar with the approach, it provides a key handbook and will be a welcome addition to their bookshelves.'
Journal of Clinical Nursing 'This book is well written and structured so that it is straight-forward for the reader to make sense of the complex but essential aspect of the role of the mentor. It would be a helpful addition to any nursing library.'
