About this session

Track: Improving Systems to Support Young Children
Audience level: Foundational

Reflective practice can be a powerful tool for people in helping professions. It can help you become more aware of your internal processes, it can help you in interactions with difficult people and it can help make you and others more effective in your work. Over the past seven years, the Nebraska Center on Reflective Practice (NCRP) has partnered with other organizations in bringing the FAN model of reflective practice into Nebraska. With nearly one thousand people having participated in training and four hundred people attending reflective consultation, the NCRP continues to expand its reach to provide this tool to people who work in sometimes challenging environments helping children and families. In this session, participants will learn about the journey the NCRP and its partners have taken over the past seven years in these efforts. Participants will also hear directly from people who have participating in reflective practice training and consultation about their experiences and the impact it has made on their lives.

Intended Audience: This session is intended for any audience who work in the helping professions and has daily interactions with others.
