During the course mentioned above I used this extensively and it has been a very useful addition to my library at home and since for reference.
It is written in a logical manner and highlights many issues and constraints in practice that healthcare workers face; for example in part one; it touches on clinical supervision and practice & practice development going on to discuss the nature of nursing and midwifery and much more. Part two; gives creative ideas of how and where reflection can take place; which is a refreshing approach as reflection for many is a heavy and dry topic to examine. The remainder of the text covers various models; types and approaches to reflection, but is written in a way that engages the reader and it is one that you can pick up and put down when required.
My daughter who has just qualified as a mental health nurse has also used it in her studies.
For a little book it covers a multitude of material relevant to reflection and brings in some ideas of thinking out of the box and one that I would recommend.
