Half day course via Zoom
This course is suitable for all Mental Health services, with an emphasis on accommodation-based services.
It is best suited to managers and seniors who are able to implement new practice.

Experience is one element of learning, however on its own is not enough. Although reflective practice is a tool largely used within health and social care to reflect on one’s own actions to take a critical stance (not judgemental) towards one’s own practice and includes that of our peers in a process of continuous adaptation and learning, it is transferable to any organisation.

This course will focus on the Gibbs cycle of reflective practice, as its cyclical nature lends itself well for continual learning. The course will look in more detail at reflection on action and reflection in action, which will assist professionals to identify their strengths, weaknesses and gaps in their skills, training, and knowledge.

The course will promote reflective practice and its benefits when adopted within organisations as a learning tool to facilitate continual improvements in practice standards. Furthermore, it will support providers to consider how they can use this tool in a way that makes sense to their organisation.

Learning objectives:
• Understand what reflective practice is.
• Understand the benefits of reflective practice.
• Know there are two types of reflection, reflection on action and reflection in action.
• Understand the Gibbs cycle of reflection and examples of questions practitioners can use to gain new learning.
• Learners will have an opportunity to use reflective practices in small groups within breakout rooms and feedback.
• Providers will have an opportunity to consider different types of reflective practice and how they might adopt it within their organisation.
• Understand how reflective practice can be used to evidence KLI’s/PAMMS/CL’s.
• Providers will have an opportunity to discuss and identify together how their organisation can adopt reflective practice.
