Reflective practice is a key element of learning and development on social work courses. This fully-updated new edition explores a range of approaches to reflective practice and includes sections on gender, reflecting on emotion and using reflection as a catalyst for change, as well as asking the fundamental question 'what is reflective practice?'
Written in three parts, this essential guide starts with a broad exploration of reflection, drawing on some 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.
