The competency that is critical for new therapists is reflective practice. As new individuals enter into the psychology practice, it is imperative to ensure that they can relate the issue they are bound to face in the course of their work with specific scientific evidence that is available. The move will see to it that the new therapist is not only able to meet his professional goals and objective but also offer therapeutic services that productive and useful because they are back by scientific evidence that has been tried and tested. It is important to acknowledge the fact that real life situations are always complex and as such therapist may be faced with situations that are entirely different from what they are used to or what they expected. Therefore, the use of reflective practice will see to it that psychologists can make their decision using more than just the technical, academic or rational knowledge.

Reflective practice will also see to it that the new therapists can engage in two major processes in the course of their work. The first process is the reflection in action also known as the reflection during the event and the reflection on action which is also known as a reflection after the action. The move will, therefore, see to it that the therapist is in a better position to make effective decisions when facing complex situations even when they do not have access to all the available information as suggested by Cartwright, George, & Cowie, (2016). As such, the new professionals will be able to build and developed effective treatment plans for their patient which will not only improve their performance but the overall treatment outcome of their patients.

Hi Yvette,

Congrats on the bonus here too! This is proactive (during the learning week) and substantively developed with attention to all areas of this assignment too, and you are among the first to post here! So, just copy this note to me anytime during week 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 if you want to have a two-day late exception or a redo of any week 1,2, 3, 4, or 5 initial post or paper. Keep in mind you can give these away anytime before the end of module 5 too.  It is up to you.

That said, that is an interesting suggestion regarding reflective practice, and it is certainly one that is supported as well as warranting consideration. In fact, this is one of the reasons it is a benchmark and we also focus on it in terms of students (Bruno, & Dell’Aversana, 2016). Arguably, as it seems you likely understand well, this relates to what we know about metacognition and critical thinking. Reflection is integral to metacognitive processes.

Yes, this is key in practice in terms of clinical decision making in general, ethical decision-making processes, and also professional growth. Why might reflective engagement be essential for professional growth and development whether as a student or advanced professional?

Dr. Henry

Hello! Dr. J

Thank you for your consideration and the congratulations for the work I have submitted lately. I am also grateful for the offer that you have given to me for submission extension and redoing my work if need be. Reflective engagement is relevant to a student or an advanced profession as it helps either person to achieve various goals, which they may have set for themselves or career-based goals. For instances about a student, he or she is in a position to access resources that they could otherwise not afford on their own. Therefore, the reflective engagement helps in steering the education of students in the right directions by facilitating the study process.

On the other hand about the advanced professionals, they are in a better position to conduct various researchers, about their respective career fields. Therefore, the reflective engagement helps the advanced professionals to be in a place to perform researchers that they could otherwise not be able to finance (Bruno, & Dell’Aversana, 2016). Most of the researchers facilitated through the reflective engagement are usually for the benefit of the common public. For instance, medical related reflective engagement is helpful as information is developed that can help promote the operations of the various community health centers.

Hi Yvette

Sure. What are you stating about finance? You said “Therefore, the reflective engagement helps the advanced professionals to be in a place to perform researchers that they could otherwise not be able to finance” To what specifically (briefly cited and referenced verbatim with a page number on this occasion for clarity please) are you referring? Let us look at this further… I think you must have identified something I overlooked that might be quite important…
