The Fourth Edition of this bestselling book explains how expressive and explorative writing, combined with in-depth group work or mentoring, can widen perspectives and give clarity of values, roles, and responsibilities. Step-by-step methods are grounded in carefully explained theories and values, and key terms such as reflection, reflexivity, critical, narrative, metaphor, mindfulness and complexity are clarified. New to this edition: * a clear route through the essentials of reflective practice * greater clarity and representation of theoretical models * a strong focus on ethical values * in-depth examples and case studies from a range of courses * clear summarization of each chapter's key contents * updated 'Read to Learn' sections and extended glossary * discussion of writing in different cultures * new online content including videos.
