How do I build reflective practice into my work?

Let’s take it a step further and add a couple of questions to help you answer these questions so your thoughts (reflective practice) after a session become part of your planning moving forward.

Questions to ask yourself:

·         Did I do what I had planned today?

·         Was I prepared today to ensure maximum learning, understanding and effectiveness?

·         What did I do well, and what made it work so well?

·         What could have been done differently, and what do I need to do to meet my goals or the group’s goals?

·         What was the most important information or skill that I wanted the families to learn today? Did they learn it? How do I know they learned it?

·         What did I learn from the families today?
