Fraser Coast health professionals and students are invited to attend a continuing education session on developing yourself as a reflective practitioner.
Reflective practice in its simplest form is thinking about or reflecting on what you do. Reflective practice is a skill that can be learned and honed. It involves the willingness and the ability to step outside of your personal framework and professional paradigm.
A person-centred approach offers a powerful yet simple tool that enables the practitioner to look clearly at their everyday practice and have tools that can be focused on themselves or used to support a peer, team, or especially a client. Our presenter this week will be sharing two person-centred tools that clarify and focus your professional practice.
Jackie Scott has been a direct care worker, manager and social worker both in the non-government and government sectors, working with people with disabilities, their family, carers, friends and paid workers for more than 30 years. She has a particular interest in person-centred planning as a tool for:
- getting quality futures for people with disability and their families
- its ability to underpin ethical and excellent organisations
- developing professional willingness to be the junior partner in the relationship with people with disabilities and their families.
FCHP:LEARN sessions are $35 for community members and $10 for students.
Please book and pay via the online portal.
