...“Describe one social work method and how you could use it in practice”
The social work method I could use is that of reflectivepractice as I believe that coming into a new profession one will be faced with various new challenges and it is from these challenges that one gains experience and becomes a better practitioner. The process of reflection according to Knott, Christine and Scragg, Terry (2010) yields positive results by learning, gaining knowledge and understanding what it is that you need to do. Reflectivepractice is also an opportunity for personal and ongoing professional development which is one of the codes of practice that each and every social worker should adhere to. It is through reflection that one can avoid past mistakes as looking back and learning from these ensures that we will not repeat them.
It is through reflectivepractice both formal and informal that some approaches are delivered effectively for example the client centred care. It is through this reflection that a practitioner can evaluate their actions and improve the service they provide. As a social worker one will be faced with different challenges and situations that will require a unique response and reflectivepractice enables you to ‘think on your feet’ as described by Schön (1983) as reflection-in-action. It is...
Professional development I feel is beneficial for both tutor and student. The process of reflecting on your own practices and having the discipline to be constructive about the actions you take to evaluate your own performance will determine the impact it has in the classroom and the teaching and learning experience. Overall this process has encouraged me to reflect on most of my practices which has helped me to understand my role as a teacher. This development has systematically reinforced the actual reason of why we as teachers perform the way we do. This has given me a boost in confidence because I now have a reason behind meaning. I use my own judgment to determine how well a particular teaching experience had benefitted my learners and whether things went good or bad. From this basic analysis I can adapt and enhance particular parts of a session to create and aim for a better learning experience. This gives me areas to focus on to help develop my skills as a teacher. I have previously focussed on inclusion and worked to move the whole class collectively by supporting them throughout their programme of learning. It is important to have the correct resources and utilise a range of techniques as this is vital in creating an interesting and challenging lesson for the individual. The Knowledge I have gained through developing different areas is becoming very useful and...
...This is a reflective essay based on my experiences whilst on my six week medical placement on a haematology ward at a local hospital. The aim of this essay is to discuss the psychological and sociological impact on the family when a loved one dies, and then focus on how the nurse supported the husband and relatives through their loss. I chose this particular incident as I felt very strongly about the care given to this patient shortly before her death, and felt the need to reflect on it further.
In order to help me with my reflection I have chosen Gibbs (1988), as the model to help guide my reflective process (see appendix 1). This model comprises of a process that helps the individual look at a situation and think about their thoughts and feelings at the time of the incident. Reflective skills help us to think about what could have been done, so that if a similar situation occurs again the experience gained can be used to deal with the situation in a professional manner (Palmer et al 1997).
To enable me to use this situation for my reflection the patient will be referred to as “Ann”. This is in order that her real name is protected and that confidentially maintained in line with the NMC (2002) Code of Professional Conduct.
Ann was a 58 year old lady married to a very loving husband, she had been previously diagnosed withmultiple myeloma with secondary renal impairment, and had been receiving cycles of...

Assignment title: Continuing personal & professional development & reflectivepractice.
In the lifelong learning sector, employers have the responsibility to work closely with their teams and develop their teaching and delivery skills. it is important that their staff members and team are qualified to teach at all different level and take steps to develop their expertise. teachers must also actively research and develop their assessing skills, what other learning materials and ways of interacting with learning, what resources are out their to meet the needs of the individual.
“Continuing professional development means minting, improving and broadening relevant knowledge and skills in your subject specialisim and your teaching training, so that it has a positive impact on experiences and activities that improve practice. this demonstrates con tuning development as a teacher or trainer (institute of learning: 2009).
i keep a continuing professional development (CPD) folder for evidence of my continuous training and development, this also consists of critical reflection journals on the different experiences of learning, as a result of this it creates an action plan for future development and training.
it is important to develop the ability to reflect on my practice swell as my training and research, the...
ManagementPractice: Critical Analysis and Review
NILAM SANGROULA (NIEL)
Date of Submission: 13 April 2011
The article “Are vulnerable workers really protected in New Zealand?” is written by two authors namely, Danae Anderson, researcher at Work research Institute, Auckland University of Technology, NZ and Rupert Tipples, Associate Professor of Employment Relations in Faculty of Commerce at Lincoln University, Christchurch, New Zealand and is published in New Zealand Journal of Employment Relations, 39 (1): 52-67.
This article is concentrated on exploring the working condition of international migrant workers and pacific workers in primary sectors and are categorised as vulnerable migrants using Sargeant and Tucker’s 2009 framework. The writers have claimed that though protective measures have been adopted to defend the vulnerability of the workers, the result is still speech making only. The article has clearly identified the research topic and used secondary sources of the information to address the research questions. The article has been successful in raising the concerns of vulnerable workers in primary sectors such as exploitation at work, underpayment, employment dependency, visa conditions, lacking of formal written contracts for employment likewise, the article has been able to pull the attention of the concerned authorities to work and rethink to...
...–PRINCIPLES OF PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT IN ADULT
SOCIAL CARE SETTINGS
Task 1 Number 1
REFLECTING ON PRACTICE
What is reflectivepractice?
Reflectivepractice enables you to develop your skills, increase your knowledge and deal with emotionally challenging situations. Developing your reflectivepractice early on will pay dividends on everything you undertake as well as building a strong foundation for a successful career.
What you did - How you did it - Why you did it - How you felt - What went well - What you would do differently. The Oxford dictionary defines the meaning of reflect as “to think carefully and deeply about something” .
Reflection is the personal examination of your own thoughts and actions, it is about thinking things over. Reflection is an important human activity in which people recapture their experience, think about it, mull over and evaluate it. When working in an adult care setting this means being conscious about how you interact with colleagues, your clients and the environment. It means thinking about how you could have done something differently, what you did well, what you could have done better, how could you improve what you did. It also means reflecting on your own values, beliefs and experiences which shape your thoughts and ideas. I am responsible for providing an equal, non discriminatory and inclusive service to...
...Behaviour Management: A Reflectivepractice
Looking at behaviour management within the classroom has shown that there are many academic theories. These include Geoff Petty, Susan Wallace and Dave Vizzard to name a few. By using these theorists books and additional internet sources it will give me the opportunity to review my own practice, ways to adapt my practice and ways to set ground rules for behaviour.
During teacher training sessions and from reading and researching the subject it is clear that it is not easy to manage a classroom full of students. In fact, many factors need to be taken into account when planning strategies to be used. By being pro-active, looking, and analyzing our own practice, it should give us a better understanding of what we have or have not done to create this. It could be suggested that the use of Kolb’s learning cycle [online] as a reflective aid would be a good place to start for tutors. The cycle is a learning cycle, and really, behaviour management always changes and evolves dependant on the students. Consequently, this means tutors need to adapt and learn new strategies and methods to continue a good practice.
Form the very start e.g. induction/first week; students are made aware of the college rules. In a practical workshop situation, there are many workshop rules that need to be adhered. Along...
...Task 1. REFLECTIVEPRACTICE
It is important to reflect on your practice to see if you can identify areas where you can improve your practice. There are many different models of reflectivepractice. Below are a couple I have researched –
Kolb’s Learning cycle – David A. Kolb believes that reflectivepractice is an important part of effective learning anddevelopment. Kolb feels that without reflection we would continue to repeat our mistakes. Kolb’s Learning cycle is as follows -
Gibb’s Experiential Learning cycle (1988) – Professor Graham Gibbs has broken down the reflective process into stages. Gibb’s Learning cycle is as follows –
John’s Structured Reflection (1994) – Chris John’s model to is a process of guided reflection. The model can be adapted to a wide range of work settings, although it was originally developed in a nursing context. John’s model has 5 key areas. They are as follows –
1. Description of the experience
3. Influencing factors
I feel that is important to reflect on your practice to identify areas of strength and see what works well. You can then continue to work this way as it is good to be effective in your work. Reflection also gives you the opportunity to identify areas that did not work too well and gives you the...
