Reflective practice has moved from the margins to the mainstream of professional education. However, in this process, its radical potential has been subsumed by individualistic, rather than situated, understandings of practice. Presenting critical perspectives that challenge the current paradigm, this book aims to move beyond reflective practice. It proposes new conceptualisations and offers fresh approaches relevant across professions. Contributors include both academics and practitioners concerned with the training and development of professionals. Definitions of reflection (which are often implicit) often focus on the individual's internal thought processes and responsibility for their actions. The individual - what they did/thought/felt – is emphasised with little recognition of context, power dynamics or ideological challenge. This book presents the work of practitioners, educators, academics and researchers who see this as problematic and are moving towards a more critical approach to reflective practice. With an overview from the editors and fourteen chapters considering new conceptualisations, professional perspectives and new practices, Beyond Reflective Practice examines what new forms of professional reflective practice are emerging. It examines in particular the relationships between reflective practitioners and those upon whom they practise. It looks at the ways in which the world of professional work has changed and the ways in which professional practice needs to change to meet the needs of this new world. It will be relevant for those concerned with initial and ongoing professional learning, both in work and in educational contexts.

Both the qualitative and quantitative data suggest that the participants in this study experienced significant changes. Specifically this research indicates that aesthetics education can facilitate transformation in the education of Human Services practitioners; that habits of mind can be changed and introduced as elements of practice, particularly impacting the areas of self, relationships and day-to-day approaches of support; and that reflective practice can go beyond "reflection-in-action" and "reflection-on-practice" to include metacognition processes.

`Reflective Practice in Mental Health provides a key foundation for socially-oriented practice. It integrates what is still relevant from earlier traditions (including neglected areas such as psychoanalytic perspectives), and links this to leading edge research and analysis. What is particularly refreshing is its willingness to engage with the depth and complexity of mental health difficulties - signposting a way forward that is grounded in theory and research, and taking us beyond the reactive, procedural and over-medicalised approaches that can dominate current practice.'---Jerry Tew, Senior Lecturer in Social Work, University of Birmingham, UK `An excellent book and a must for the professional who wants to further develop their knowledge and practice of psychosocial practice. It is timely as social work needs to raise its game and to establish its professional identity. Using a variety of case studies showing how a range of methods of intervention can work, this makes compelling reading for those who are engaged in working with people who have mental health problems. This book will appeal to a range of mental health professionals and is especially relevant for practitioners who are looking to develop advanced psychosocial practice'---Professor Malcolm Golightley, Head of the School of Health and Social Care, University of London, UK Reflective Practice in Mental Health is the authoritative, definitive guide to psychosocial theory, research and practice in mental health work with children and adults. Featuring contributions from eminent experts, the book uses case studies to illustrate and address the complexities and dilemmas faced by practitioners involved in mental health care, and enables the reader to reflect to their understanding. Cases studies from a variety of theoretical perspectives are included, covering psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioural therapy systemic family therapy, attachment therapy and therapeutic group-work. They also cover practice across a range of settings, including inpatient, community and children and family services. This book will be an invaluable text for students and practitioners in social work and allied professions. This series takes a practice-led, reflective approach to key areas of work in social care. Books in the series tackle the complexities and dilemmas that practitioners face every day, by using a series of case examples. Each book focuses on a different area of social work, including vulnerable children, looked after children and mental health. The discussion within each book is built around case studies, in order to give clear examples of how an integrated knowledge base can be applied to practice. This series is essential reading for all post-qualifying social work students and social work practitioners.

Taking the concept and the practice of reflective teaching forward, this book introduces a well-structured, flexible framework for use by teachers at all levels of development, from pre-service to novice to the most experienced. The framework outlines five levels of reflective practice—Philosophy; Principles; Theory-of-Practice; Practice; Beyond Practice—and provides specific techniques for teachers to implement each level of reflection in their work. Designed to allow readers to take either a deductive approach, moving from theory-into-practice, or an inductive approach where they start from a practice-into-theory position, the framework can be used by teachers alone, in pairs, or in a group.

A major reason for the use of cases in teacher education is based on the assumption that preservice teachers, via discussion of cases, will reflect on how educational theory can inform practice and when these students enter the classroom they will be better prepared for the realities of the classroom and will critically analyze their practices to improve students' learning by applying sound theories to classroom situations. Research supports that preservice teachers do become more reflective about teaching and classroom issues when exposed to cases (Allen, 1994; Lundberg, Levin & Harrington, 1999; Moje & Wade, 1997). However, it is unclear if students exposed to cases behave differently once they enter the classroom than those students not exposed to cases. In our use of cases to develop good reflective-practitioners, we seem successful in the "reflective" part, but do cases have enough "staying power" to also be successful in developing the "practitioner" part? That is the purpose of this study. This study investigated the longitudinal effects of using case studies (compared to another reflective learning activity and traditional instruction) in an undergraduate educational psychology course on the subsequent student-teaching practices of preservice teachers. Eighty-two students and their cooperating and supervising teachers were surveyed regarding the student-teachers' levels of reflection-in-practice during their student-teaching experience. Both qualitative and quantitative data were analyzed from 261 surveys. Findings indicate that students from case study and reflective journal groups demonstrated more reflective-practitioner qualities than students from the traditional lecture group. The following are appended: (1) Student Teaching Survey; (2) Responses to Question 1 based on Student Teacher Surveys; (3) Summary for Question 1; (4) Responses to Question 4 based on Student Teacher Surveys; (5) Summary for Question 4 based on Student Teacher Surveys; (6) Responses to Question 5 based on Student Teacher Surveys; (7) Summary for Question 5 based on Student Teacher Surveys; and (8) Comparisons between ST-CT-SupT for Questions #1, #4, #5.

This book offers some suggestions as to ways forward from this dilemma. Drawing on the new intellectual frameworks of critical pedagogy, feminism and postmodernism and their impact upon educational theory, practice and research, the book focuses on the changing contexts of adult education. By building on the notion of going beyond the limits of certain current adult education orthodoxies, the authors try to provide alternatives for practice. The final three chapters deal with research, focusing on a critical macro-analysis of mainstream paradigms, a review of alternative approaches, and a more micro-analysis centering on the role of the socially-located self in the research process.

The book is critical of approaches to theory which create a mystique and barriers to understanding. Equally, though, approaches to practice which ignore or neglect the underpinning knowledge base and values are presented as fundamentally flawed and dangerous.

Reflective practice is an essential skill for those working in health and social care, but why is it so vital and how can it be learned? As inter-disciplinary working becomes more common, finding shared ways of reflection on practice are becoming more and more important. How do we share our ideas and thoughts to enrich both professionals and their client base? This book uses stories and exercises to enable readers to develop their skills. Its emphasis is on the practical, from how to construct a reflective essay to the ethical ambiguities of whistleblowing and constructing a professional persona. The book is written with the needs of students of health and social care in mind. For those who want to develop their skills beyond the scope of the book, each chapter ends by with a step-up suggestion enabling them to build on what they have already learned.

Besides the difficult personal transitions involved in growth from childhood to adulthood, immigrant adolescents face difficult transitions to school as well, as they move from their native cultures to the U.S. culture, through the structures and gateposts of secondary school, and into higher education and work. This book discusses four specific principles that can be applied by secondary school staff to facilitate these reconceptualizations and promote students' transitions are proposed: (1) cultivating organizational relationships with and among health and social service agencies, community-based organizations, and higher education institutions; (2) providing access to information, about U.S. schools and culture, available resources and support services, workplaces and career preparation, and higher education; (3) cultivating human relationships, between immigrant students and adults, between students, among school staff, and between educators and families; and (4) providing multiple and flexible pathways into U.S. schooling and culture, into the mainstream, and beyond secondary school. With discussion of each of the principles, a list of questions is offered for school staff to ask in establishing practices based on the principle. (Contains 106 references and a list of related or useful organizations and programs.) (MSE)
