About this book

This edited volume addresses the different methods professionals use to promote a critical reflective and reflexive stance among practitioners, leading to both a reconceptualization of practice and its subsequent change.  The goal of increased reflection in professional education is intended to expand approaches for professionals to work with diverse others. It is also intended to increase their levels of cognitive differentiation and depth of professional consciousness about themselves alongside diverse others in a rapidly changing world. This is an important issue in a range of applied professional programs, from education to medicine, social work to psychology, business to criminal justice, in nearly every country in the world.  

 

About the authors

Hilary Brown is Associate Professor in the Department of Teacher Education at Brock University, Canada. She is the recipient of the 2012 Brock University Award for Excellence in Teaching for Early Career Faculty. As a qualitative researcher, Brown encourages her students to delve deeply into the self in order to expose and reconcile their vulnerabilities while simultaneously attempting to do the same. The reciprocal nature of this deeply reflective process has the potential to result in the improvement of one’s professional practice. Brown’s research focuses on the practical application of holistic and invitational theory.
