The third stage of Gibbs’ reflective model is evaluation. In this stage, I will reveal that good and the bad part of the situation. My reaction towards the situation was mixed one. There were times when I really wanted to be part of the situation and help people suffering from dementia. On the other hand, there were many times when I was not willing to be that helpful as a carer should be. My initial reaction to the situation was a surprising one. This was mainly because the way Susan was handling the situation and constantly repeating the same answer for John. John just wanted to know when his son will arrive. Susan kept repeating the same answer that “he will be a little late as he is at work” over and over again. Susan showed no sign on …show more content…
Conduct turns into a method for correspondence. According to this theory, John was not behaving agitated or annoyed intentionally. He was just trying to communicate through his behaviour. Even though, this was wrong on many levels, John was pretty much helpless as he did not know what to do and how to let Susan know that he wanted to meet Harry because that would make him feel that all is well for him. When I went to calm down John whilst he was passing all kinds of verbal abuses towards Susan, I realised that my smile had an effect on John in a positive way. He had started trusting me and became relaxed regarding the fact that Harry would indeed come and John would get to meet him. Facial expressions of carers play a significant role for dementia patients. The stage 5 of Gibbs’ reflective model is conclusion. In this stage, I will conclude the reflection by stating the main points. This reflection has been mainly about dementia patients. The reflection has focused on a particular case of John who has dementia and he has been trying to get his wife to call their son Harry to the hospital, so that John can meet him. However, the main fact is that Harry died 5 years ago in a car accident and John being a dementia patient, has forgotten this particular

The professional values that I have chosen to reflect on is consent. Using Driscoll (2007) model of reflection which is components circle involves three events: what? So what? Now what? A reflection account will focus on my experience of working in the surgical ward.
The Process of Reflection The process of reflection is central to clinical supervision. Launer (2003) describes external and internal factors in supervision whereby clinical practice and sharing skills are external and reflection is an ‘internal conversation.’ Brunero & Stein-Parbury (2008) discussed the effects of clinical supervision in nursing staff and argued that self-reflection generates a sense of self-awareness and knowledge to the individual. Supervisees or students may be asked what happened during a clinical event, how they felt, the implications of their actions and what they would do differently if faced with the same situation.
One of the most prevalent ethical issue associated with reflective practice is that of confidentiality, although no names are revealed when reflection takes place, it can be questioned as to whether the interactions we have with patients should be used to help further our professional development (Hargreaves J. 1997). Reflection and reflective practice also have professional implications as it increases the student’s vulnerability as they are recounting events which could have caused them distress in the past as reflection itself is a process which requires the individual to reveal the minute details of how an event made them feel, therefore it is vital that people who are undergoing this process have the support that they require (Cleary M. et. al. 2013). Knight K. et. al (2010) argue that not only do students need this supervision, reflective practice groups should be favoured as they give the students more support, not only from their supervisor but also their peers who could be going through the same
The following reflection piece is based on an event which I experienced during my internship placement. Johns model of reflection will be used for this assignment. The reflection is based around my own personal experience with a terminally ill patient. It focuses on one main issue, providing hope for patients and how I felt about it. it also discusses my feelings, the knowledge I had, my knowledge gaps and what I learnt through literature during my reflection.
Reflection is like looking in a mirror and describing what you see. It’s about thinking back to an experience and questioning what I did, and emotions that I felt during the experience, and then reflecting on a better and more sufficient way of doing it in the future (UNISON, 2016). Gibbs Reflective Cycle is the model that I have chosen to use while reflecting back on the module “Learning from service users and carers”, Gibbs believes that this module is useful for helping people learn from what that they experienced. He calls this “Learning by Doing” (Mind Tools, 2016). When finding out that a module I would cover on the social work degree was learning from service users and carers, my initial thought was care homes and carers within them.
In this stage, I will describe what I felt about the situation. At first, I was amazed at the way Susan was taking care of the situation. She was continuously trying to keep John calm, but even she knew that she was failing at it. The pain on her face whilst telling her husband that their son will be coming late, when in reality he won’t be coming at all, was clear. At this point I wondered that how many times John must have asked this question at home and how Susan would have taken care of the situation.
Reflection is not about evaluating an intervention of the client, but rather the process of theory that we use through our own experience and knowledge (Duncan, E., 2009). Also, it is imperative to recapture practice experiences and mull them over critically in order to gain new understandings and to improve future practice as a therapist (Finlay, L., 2008) as the healthcare sector is constantly changing and upgrading itself. Reflection also allows us to apply our knowledge that is improving to a wide variety of cases that we may encounter, be it a case that we have seen before or a totally new case that we have to
In order to structure my reflection essay in a practical approach I have decided to use Gibbs Reflective Cycle (1988) model of reflection. This model has been selected as it helps to present the reflection in an easy and understandable manner, so the issues can be evaluated through different angles (Jasper, 2003:78). John 's (1995) model provides a good
To become a reflective social work student, I need to be able to undergo self-reflection. This is a process of conducting self-assessment and observation. Gibbs’ Reflective Cycle influence user like myself to self-reflect and more importantly it encourages users to develop an action plan. This enables me to look at my practice and evaluate on the areas I did good and bad. In turn, by taking these experiences into learning I can use them to improve on for the future.
After Act II, it is easier to sympathize with John. This is because it seems that he genuinely wanted to share his beliefs with his student – to create a more personal relationship; however, he did not expect the repercussions that unravelled in Act II and III. For example, when he stated that education is a “joke”, he wanted Carol to have a better understanding of how he looks at the education system. He wanted Carol to understand that education should not be something that an individual worries so much about because it is simply seeing and regurgitating – a concept that Carol was unable to understand. After Act II, it seems that Carol completely misinterpreted John’s intentions, resulting in him possibly losing his tenure because of the fact that she is an incomprehensive student that is not able to grasp certain ideals.
In early 1970s nursing started to move away from routines and rituals towards research-based practice (James and Clarke 1994). Reflection is a broad and complex process (Kenzi-Sampson 2005) therefore there is not a set single definition (Jarvis 1992). According to Reid (1993, p.305) reflection can be defined as a “process of reviewing an experience of practice to describe, analyze, evaluate and so inform learning about practice”. The question is why do we need reflective practice. This essay will try to
Description Reflection is a necessary component in learning to regulate opinion, feelings, and actions. Reflection links experience and knowledge by providing an opportunity to explore areas of concern in a critical way and to make adjustments based on these reflections (Knowles Z., Tyler G., 2006). I will be using the Gibbs G (1988) Learning by Doing: A guide to teaching and learning methods (Davies S., 2012).
