Pinpointing the target behavior(s) to be treated is when you specifying target behaviors. Monitoring progress is when you work on the procedures needed for reorganization and observation of the changed behavior.
In addition, I offer my reflection about my experience of learning to use a critical reflection approach to integrate theory and practice. . As a student, I understand that in order to develop professionally , I need to set up my goals and I need to analyze my strength and weaknesses.

I have included my own Safeguarding Children’s Policy and plan to update this when I have done this assignment if needed. There are many obstacles we have to face whilst working with multi agencies therefore I will discuss some of these points, including the importance of parent partnership. I have learnt all about the Common Assessment Framework for children and young people (CAF) and I will include my findings along with how and why a serious case review would take place. Lastly I will reflect on my own role as a professional to see what improvements I can make to my skills to help deal with situations that may arise. I am hoping by the end of this assignment to have a secure understanding of different types of abuse, how to identify it and what the next steps would be to prevent child abuse continuing.
Reflective Account The purpose of this essay is to provide a reflective account on a clinical intervention I was involved in during practice experience. An adapted versions of Driscoll’s (2002) What? Model will be used in order to guide me through the reflective process (see appendix 1). Reflection on an experience is a learning activity requiring an ability to analyse one’s self in relation to what has happened or is happening and make judgements regarding this (Driscoll 2007). In accordance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (2008), confidentiality shall be maintained throughout.
Mezirow (1997, 2000) states: “Transformative learning refers to transforming a problematic frame of reference to make it more dependable in our adult life by generating opinions and interactions that are more justified. We become critically reflective of those beliefs that become problematic.” (p20) Mezirow (1997, 2000) implies depth of learning is gained from being critically reflective on self and on others work in order to strive towards change; also that there needs to be a desire for making changes i.e. a purpose to the action. Mezirow (1997, 2000) further discusses that critical reflections should encompass looking at self as well as considering; social, educational, political or psychological influences similar in concept to reflection on action as outlined in theory discussed by Schön (1983) although Schön (1983) does go on and include reflection in action within his work, something Mezirow does not. Schön (1983) suggested that reflection is a key factor for professionals to deal with complex situations and for professional development.
This model supports “reflection on action”, allowing me to think retrospectively and systematically analyse each phase of the experience. The last phase then allows me to plan a course of action if I were to ever come across a similar situation.
