Reflective practice is a key element of learning and development on social work courses and it is an important aspect of social work practice. This accessible and introductory text explores a range of approaches to reflective practice that will help students become more confident in answering the question 'what is reflective practice?' There are sections on writing reflective journals, communicating well with service users and carers and reflective practice while on placements.
Written in three parts, this essential guide starts with a broad exploration of reflection, drawing on key texts that have informed its development. It then moves on to real practice issues including the management of social work practice and interprofessional working. Finally, part three looks at maintaining reflective practice and how to use these skills during your time as a social worker. Fully updated with the Professional Capabilities Framework, this third edition is a must-have for all social work students at the beginning of their careers.
