This is the second edition of Barbara Bassot's hugely popular The Reflective Journal, the uniquely inspiring introduction to critically reflective practice. A powerful tool for processing thoughts, feelings and actions, this book will enables the reader to develop their practice and achieve their professional goals. The new edition includes 10 brand-new sections, on themes such as reflecting in groups, time management and challenging limiting assumptions, as well as the space to write reflections and the wealth of tips and advice on career development that made the first edition such a bestseller. Written for students on a range of courses, from education and business to social work, counselling and health, this book is also a must-have companion for those on placement or in professional practice - or indeed anyone who is being encouraged to reflect more deeply and critically on what they do.
