What 1625ip’s colleagues say about the positives of RP
 
“It helps me to consider alternative perspectives, ones that I might not have thought about previously”
“The staff can be great at thinking outside of the box to approach a problem"
“ I do find RP extremely valuable nonetheless [despite not providing direct support]…  I think reflection is an important part of learning and developing in general”
 “I think that I find RP more valuable as broader reflective tool around the culture and practice of the organisation rather than specifically offering me useful support in my role”

Why attend?

The current Covid 19 and political context has added additional pressures for colleagues and organisations already engaged in rewarding but often challenging work. Now more than ever, organisations are seeking to set up reflective spaces for staff to connect with each other, to reflect, seek solutions and bring new perspectives to their work in a safe and structured way. This condensed training package offers an accessible space to help you and your organisation develop and expand reflective practice and realise the benefits of this evidence based process.

Reflective Practice is increasingly recognised as a critical tool in the learning and development of teams and organisations and colleague wellbeing. Used widely by teams who work with people in nursing, social care settings, support and homelessness services, it has become recognised as a best practice tool in developing safe and forward thinking services. It is particularly helpful for organisations that manage complexity in fast-paced environments, which often require decisions to be made in the moment.
 
Feedback from participants
  • "The workshops over-met my expectations, as I had not expected it to provide such an opportunity to drive the development of RP in my organisation and how this fits into the development of a PIE framework."
  • "… has enabled me to create an action plan around developing RP. Useful to consider how RP sessions need to fit with our ethos and values and how it fits into our broader framework."
  • "Making RP sustainable and to understand the resource and time required to meaningfully lead & embed was really useful."
  • "This training has come out at the perfect time…as I had felt a bit stuck… and this training has given me clarity around how to move forward. Also very useful to build links with Dawn and Michelle who have been very helpful in sharing knowledge and advice. I highly recommend this training for anyone who is keen to develop RP and understand how this fits into creating and building a trauma-informed service."

Positive feedback from previous courses
  • “I had some incredible light bulb moments that will really help me in facilitating – for example, not feeling obliged to solve problems and find solutions, feeling able to acknowledge feelings and using this to steer the group in an appropriate way, feeling able to address uncomfortable feelings in an appropriate way that can lead on meaningful reflections and how to deal with conversations that may be repetitive or needed to be taken outside of the session.” 
  • “It will mean that the RP space can feel safer, and therefore be used more effectively.”
  • “The facilitators made the group feel very safe, bonded and comfortable. This made the training very enjoyable and stimulating. I would fully recommend this training to anyone who is keen to develop reflective practice sessions and feel confident in facilitating.”
