Reflective Practice is essential to protecting workers from stress, overwhelm, trauma and compassion fatigue. As practitioners we are called to work in the field of caretaking/helping and for many of us this unconscious decision is based on an exquisite skill and capacity to track and care of the other. This usually speaks to a history that necessitated the child to take care of a parent/caretaker – this is the story of “The Drama of the Gifted Child”. As practitioners we require a framework that supports us to recognise how we at times “abandon” our own needs to care for others. It is in this unconscious attachment patterning that practitioners and clients are most at risk.
Explore and identify core motivating themes showing up in your practice. Learn ways to reflect, track and attune to what is happening in relationship to your work. Learn ways to support an embodied selfcare practice and identify ways to nurture and nourish yourself as you work in individual, agency or team environments.
We have a Duty of Care to our clients and ourselves to ensure we are working from a place of health, choice and awareness. Reflective Practice ensures we are aware, skilled and supported to work with projection, transference and counter- transference.
Reflective practice groups are designed to provide a safe space to debrief and attain support in the areas of self-reflection in relation to client work.
