Reflective PracticeNameCourse numberInstructor’s nameDateIntroductionThere are two very important components of reflective practice namely self-awareness and self-understanding. Reflective practice requires that counselors be not only skilled in their area of practice, but that they also are aware of their personal tendencies that influence their efficiency and objectivity of their service. Counselors require being mindful of their weaknesses and strong points to intentionally monitor how they may influence their performance. Reflective practitioners evaluate their performance after counseling sessions and use that information for their continuous professional development. They develop self-awareness, monitor their potential for stress and employ self -care measures as part of evaluating their performance and examining their rationale for their choices. Reflective practice is thus important in enhancing practitioners’ knowledge from experiential learning (Mental Health Academy, 2008).

Grief counselors use their specialty knowledge to assist the bereaved and providing grief therapy for those presenting with prolonged, delayed or exaggerated grieving complications. Grieving persons often accommodate bereavement as part of life by using their informal social support and thus do not require meeting with grief counselors for therapy or additional assistance. For others, social support is unavailable or the pain is disenfranchised which intensifies feelings of grief. In such situations, a grief counselor is helpful in providing necessa...
