How was it for you? Students’ experiences of student-led reflection sessions

Janet Smith and Daphne Loads describe a study designed to identify learning disability nursing students’ perceptions of a project where they facilitated, presented and participated in a series of reflective sessions

Ideas, knowledge and awareness of self can all be developed and transformed from practising the art of reflection. Learning from our life experiences and being able to recognise the difference between what is desirable and what is actual practice is a crucial trigger for change (Johns 1995). Brockbank and McGill (1998) make the distinction between sharing thoughts and feelings with others and therefore making them open to question, and merely thinking by oneself.
