Abstract:

"Grounded in the concept that “how you are is as important in what you do"" (Pawl & St. John, 1998), this presentation will allow participants the chance to learn about and engage in reflective practice. Reflective practice is the discipline of regularly “stepping back” to consider the meaning of what has transpired in relationships, and to examine one’s professional and personal responses to these interactions for the purpose of determining further action. (Emde, et al., 2001) Best practice suggests that by consistently engaging in reflective practice, we are better equipped to do our work in a relationship-based, trauma-informed, culturally responsive way.

Our time together will begin with the exploration of the possible ways in which stress and dysregulation (as well as regulation) show up in our bodies, our work, and in our lives. Through the use of didactic instruction and experiential exercises, we will then spend time learning about and utilizing reflective practice to better understand how to best support our regulation and strengthen the connections we build with others including the parents and babies we serve. "

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1. List at least (3) signs of regulation and at least (3) signs of dysregulation for themselves as well as others

Objective 2. Describe the ways in which their regulatory abilities impact their relationships and the ways in which their relationships impact their regulatory abilities.

Objective 3. Describe how to implement at least two (2) new aspects of reflective practice into their work.
