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.
