The ability to reflect on practice has traditionally been a way for practitioners to evaluate their own practice and the practice of others, with a view to developing their professional identity. Various methods of reflective practice are employed within the field, from basic diary writing to the adoption of particular models, as a means of providing a framework for the reflective process, so that it can inform the work of thepractitioners participating within it. In response to such beliefs, reflective practice is viewed as an important component of practitioner preparation programs. The authors of this book with to take this notion further, suggesting that what is needed in order to effet change is the development of a critically reflective practitioner, who can think otherwise about practice and who is receptive to new epistemology.
