The revalidation process requires nurses to prepare five written reflective accounts and so it is important that they understand what reflection can involve. 

Intended to support professional practitioners for whom reflection is integral to practice, this useful book includes case studies from occupational therapy, social work and all fields of nursing to demonstrate that reflection can be part of practice in many different professions.

It also describes a number of theories about individual learning styles that readers can apply to themselves. 

While offering much that will be of interest to practitioners, the book would also be useful for clinical supervisors and mentors. It would be a worthwhile purchase for many practitioners in a variety of careers and a useful addition to any healthcare library.
