This offers a clear and well-structured overview of theories and principles of reflective practice. Carefully linked to competences and practice standards, this should be really useful for students to get to grips with the tricky concepts of reflection, reflective practice and reflexivity. Definitions are accessible and the case studies offer students a chance to apply the concepts in a formative way.
