Engaging reflection in practice: a narrative approach develops Chris Johns’ existing models and ideas for actively engaging in reflective practice and demonstrates their application to holistic practice and everyday nursing care. Central to this book is a narrative account building on extracts from his reflective journal over a period of two years, which enables the reader to fully understand what being a reflective practitioner involves, how it evolves and how reflective practice influences practice over time.

Part 1 addresses the nature of reflective practice and holistic care and explores how the author developed his narrative account in part 2. Either part may be read independently of the other.
