Reflective Practice in Social Work

Fifth Edition
Edited by:


January 2019 | 256 pages | Learning Matters
Reflective practice is at the heart of becoming a competent and confident social worker. It's both a key element of learning and development on social work courses and an important aspect of social work practice.
This accessible and introductory text explores a range of approaches to reflective practice to help students become more confident in answering key questions, including 'what is reflective practice?', 'how do I develop as a reflective practitioner?' and  'how do I maintain reflective practice in key contexts?'. There are many useful resources such as Writing reflective journals, Communicating well with service users and carers and Reflective practice while on placements.
