A practical approach to trauma informed care
Introduction to reflective practice
Reflective Practice is a core aspect of a psychologically informed environment and it is generally recognised as being essential for staff who work with individuals who have complex needs. There are well-established links between reflective practice and positive outcomes for clients, staff and organisations, including improved practice and staff well-being. Reflective practice in groups is particularly effective in enabling individuals and teams to 'step back' from their work and to learn from experience in a supportive and structured forum. There are a number of issues and tasks that are important to consider in setting up and running a successful reflective practice group programe.
