Self-reflection in reflective practice: a Jaspers' orientation
Abstract:Reflective practice is also a process of self-reflection by concerned professionals. In this paper, the writer tries to revisit the process and psychopathology of self-reflection described by the prominent German psychiatrist, Karl Jaspers (1883-1972). He affirmed that self-reflection involves self-observation, self-revelation and self-understanding. The implications of Jaspers' view of reflective professional practice are also discussed.
