Reflective Practice in Social Work by Christine Knott
Reflective practice is a key learning and development process on social work courses. This book looks at the concept of reflection and reflective social work practice from a more critical stance than previous texts and in accessible ways involving case material and practical tasks. Divided into two parts, the main section of the book will examine some of the more difficult and radical applications of the concept - for example emotionally intelligent workers, dangerousness, men in social work and inter-professional leadership. The final section will explore how a reflective approach to practice can be maintained and enhanced in the workplace.
