Reflective practice, also known as reflective supervision, is a type of clinical practice that relies on people’s experiences to improve the way they work. Reflective practice helps those involved work through stressful and/or traumatic experiences in an effort to reduce the negative impacts these experiences have on the workforce’s personal and professional lives. An emerging practice in Nebraska, reflective supervision is increasingly being adopted in early childhood education and child welfare arenas where retention rates are low and work related stress is high. This session will provide an overview of the work of the new Nebraska Center on Reflective Practice by giving a review of what reflective practice is, why it is important for the well-being of the human services workforce and the process of becoming a trained practitioner for reflective practice and/or supervision.
