Reflective Practice in Child and Youth Care
By Donicka Budd
A unique manual to the discipline, Reflective Practice in Child and Youth Care addresses the need for distinct models of reflective practice across all Child and Youth Care (CYC) sectors. This seminal work contextualizes the history of reflective practice and provides readers with the necessary tools to develop their own approach to reflective practice. Special topics and key concepts include reflective practice theory, the mindfulness-reflection connection, and transformative learning techniques.
Aligned with the CYC Code of Ethics and the CYC Competencies of Professionalism, this book promotes self-awareness and critical self-reflection through case studies, end-of chapter discussion questions, reflective writing templates, and self-assessment exercises. Fostering reflective methods and self-care strategies that can be used in practicums and professional settings, this unique workbook is an essential resource for students at any stage of a college or university program in child and youth care.
