PWCS 32: Principles of personal development in adult social care settings Understand how to reflect practice in adult social care. 1.1 Explain what reflective practice is. Reflective practice is a process to help evaluate my work. It provides opportunities to learn from my experience and develop my working practice. It is both a tool to help me analyse specific interactions or incidents that have occurred at work, as well as a method of working in the moment that is mindful and self-aware.
Reflective practice is a term used to describe a technique for analysing and addressing developmental needs which we may have. It is a process by which we look back on how we work or have worked, identifying weaknesses and areas for improvement. Reflective practice also enables us to identify strengths which we can maintain. Reflecting on our practice therefore helps us to improve and develop ourselves. Reflective practice can take place: verbally – discussing our progress and practice with managers, supervisors, tutors or colleagues in writing – such as writing an account or diary of daily activities, developments or incidents, and identifying ways in which we could use these experiences to improve.
They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their well being” (bacp.co.uk). Counselling is a process that gives clients time and space to work through their problems and understand how they are feeling and why. Counsellors are there to facilitate this change and development. (1.2.) Explain their own philosophical approach to counselling Where I am in my training I feel that I have a good understanding of the person centred approach to counselling.
Reflection as a learning tool allows me to identify the positive and negative aspects of my practice and to draw upon previous experiences and apply them to new situations “Reflective practice has, however, the potential to help practitioners in all fields unlock the tacit knowledge and understanding that they have of their practice and use this to generate knowledge for future practice”. (Schutz, 2007 pg.26) The clinical competency I have chosen in this report is Phlebotomy. As part of my role as a health care support worker within a District Nursing team Phlebotomy is one of my primary duties. The clinical skill I have chosen to reflect upon within this account is venepuncture.

Reflecting on activities from work and also other places is a great way to develop the things that you know, and also discover what you don’t know, allowing you to set your mind on ways to develop your knowledge and fill in any gaps in your knowledge. Learning to properly reflect on what has happened is in the past is one of the most valuable personal skills, and it’s a way that an individual can develop themselves without the need for textbooks and training, merely learning not to repeat mistakes you’ve made, and recognizing actions as mistakes in the first place goes a long way to making a person more efficient at their job role. It’s important to access the skills you have, and also the skills you lack to know where improvement is needed, and knowing exactly what you want to learn is useful in reducing the time necessary in producing a new skill. Along with having knowledge and skills,
SHC 32: Engage in personal development in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings 2.1 Reflective practice is extremely important as it lets me reflect on my actions and experiences in my workplace and where I can improve my quality of service. It is important to observe the children at all times but personally I find it really useful to reflect on practice during role play especially when new role play equipment is being used, this lets me see how they react and I can make changes and improve where necessary. On the other hand this gives me the opportunity to look at my own learning needs and gives me a greater understanding of how things can be made better and therefore be able to help others in an appropriate way.

Skills-based teambuilding 4. Problem solving-based teambuilding Personality-based Teambuilding In personality-based teambuilding, members of the team fill out a personality questionnaire and then learn about their own personalities and the personalities of their fellow team members. The team then uses the results as a basis for discussion, developing action steps, and participating in various development experiences. The underlying rationale for this approach is that if team members better understand each other (such as differences in how team members perceive, make decisions, and react to events), they can then learn how to better communicate and deal with each other, thus enhancing team effectiveness. Activity-based Teambuilding In activity-based teambuilding, teams carry out challenging tasks, usually in outdoor settings (e.g., an experiential "ropes" course, or an outdoor adventure, such as white water rafting, mountain climbing, a survival course, or boot camp).
Through initial understanding of the basic foundations of this theory, we will discuss the philosophy that assists with the establishment of enhancing shared learning and the benefit of mentoring. The most important goal from this presentation is the hopes that you will gather this information in an appropriate manner and begin implementing the caring relationship to not only to our but also coworkers in your practice setting. The Model The sole purpose of the caring-healing relationship is constantly evolving through the International Caritas Consortium, an organization established by Jean Watson to bring awareness to her theory on transpersonal caring. The ambition of this model is to bring an ever constant awareness to the changes present in our profession and how to overcome these challenges through the use of the caring relationship by supporting each other both in an academic and professional setting. With the accumulated shared knowledge and experiences, nurses are able to enhance not only
The Hyacinth Berry case study will be used throughout to identify and discuss the interconnections of values, ethics and legislation. The General Social Care (GSCC) and BASW offer the social work profession its value base. The message from reading their requirements is that values are a fundamental part of a competent social worker. There is also a clear need for both students and qualified workers to ‘identify and question their own values and prejudices and their implications for practice.’ The need for social workers to have respect for persons and their right to self determination still remains the key to practice. Complexities of the social work task relate partly to the worker having to negotiate the tension between these values and the dilemmas that decision making brings.
