Writing and Professional Development

Gillie E J Bolton,

Reflective Practice: Writing and Professional Development
 

About the eBook

Reflection and reflexivity invite critical, sensitive examination of practice, exploration of principles, concepts and ideas, and development of thoughtful self-awareness.

The Fourth Edition of this bestselling book explains how expressive and explorative writing, combined with in-depth group work or mentoring, can widen perspectives and give clarity of values, roles, and responsibilities. Step-by-step methods are grounded in carefully explained theories and values, and key terms such as reflection, reflexivity, critical, narrative, metaphor, mindfulness and complexity are clarified.

New to this edition:

  • a clear route through the essentials of reflective practice
  • greater clarity and representation of theoretical models
  • a strong focus on ethical values
  • in-depth examples and case studies from a range of courses
  • clear summarization of each chapter’s key contents
  • updated ‘Read to Learn’ sections and extended glossary
  • discussion of writing in different cultures
  • new online content including videos.
