Reflective Practice in Social Work Summary

Reflective Practice in Social Work by Christine Knott

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 that aims to help students become more confident in answering key questions, including 'what is reflective practice?', 'how do I develop as a reflective practitioner?', 'how do I maintain reflective practice in key contexts?'. There are sections on writing reflective journals, communicating well with service users and carers and reflective practice while on placements.
