A reflective practitioner is one who is open to learning and does so by engaging gin a continuous cyclical process of review, development and change. This is crucial to providing high quality and effective services for clients and to support the wellbeing of the practitioner.
Deep reflection involves more than what you did, why you did it and how you did it. This workshop will explore what it means to engage in deep reflective practice and share some practical ways that you can embed this into your work.

- Engaging in deep reflection
- Embedding reflective practice in our everyday work
Who should attend
This workshop will be pitched at workers across the domestic violence, women’s health and wellbeing and sexual assault services at an intermediate level.
