Positive feedback from previous courses

“I had some incredible light bulb moments that will really help me in facilitating – for example, not feeling obliged to solve problems and find solutions, feeling able to acknowledge feelings and using this to steer the group in an appropriate way, feeling able to address uncomfortable feelings in an appropriate way that can lead on meaningful reflections and how to deal with conversations that may be repetitive or needed to be taken outside of the session.”

“It will mean that the RP space can feel safer, and therefore be used more effectively.”

“The facilitators made the group feel very safe, bonded and comfortable. This made the training very enjoyable and stimulating. I would fully recommend this training to anyone who is keen to develop reflective practice sessions and feel confident in facilitating.”

What 1625ip’s colleagues say about the positives of RP

“It helps me to consider alternative perspectives, ones that I might not have thought about previously”

“The staff can be great at thinking outside of the box to approach a problem"

“ I do find RP extremely valuable nonetheless [despite not providing direct support]… I think reflection is an important part of learning and developing in general”

“I think that I find RP more valuable as broader reflective tool around the culture and practice of the organisation rather than specifically offering me useful support in my role”
