Despite the fact that most social workers are expected to be critically reflective in their practice, there is often a lack of clarity about what it involves in practice and in theory.  This can be especially confusing for students who are being assessed on it, and also for practitioners who are expected to demonstrate it, and for supervisors who are supposed to encourage reflection. This workshop aims to clarify some of this confusion, but also to focus on the experiential learning of critical reflection so that it might be used more intentionally in the different settings in which social workers learn and work. The workshop will be primarily interactive, but will also address the practical and ethical concerns of how to create supportive learning environments which will facilitate critical reflection at different levels of the workplace: in frontline practice, in supervision and in management. The workshop is suitable to students at all levels, for practising social workers, as well as supervisors and managers.

 

The program will include:

 

  • A brief overview of different understandings of critical reflection
  • Practice of learning and facilitating critical reflection in small groups
  • Discussion and presentation of practical, pedagogical and ethical issues I learning and facilitating critical reflection
  • Development of action plans for further practice of critical reflection and creation of critically reflective environments
