This book is very much a complete guide to reflective practice from theory, through to developing the underlying skills and then moving on to the experience of becoming reflective and the legacy of that reflection on personal growth and development.
It is however, a book that takes on two sides of development from the perspective of the student but also the mentor looking at clinical supervision and the difficult area of assessment and evaluation of reflection. It provides a number of exercises to support reflection but also looks widely at the literature of reflection and it meaning for nursing practice.
Is it only for nurses as the title suggests? No, this book does use exemplars from nursing practice but it is very much aimed at health practitioners in general and other practitioners as going with the sub head of the title it is about ‘The growth of the professional practitioner’.
Recommended for all from educators, managers through to trainees and students.
