18 Chapter 2 Integrating theory and developing reflective practice in practice learning Such a view is unethical as it would suggest that research into effective practice and the harnessed wisdom of an experienced social worker are not relevant. There would be no structure or direction to social work if that were the case and such views needs to change. It is worth examining what we might mean by ‘theory’. A useful way of conceptualising theory is offered by Payne (1997) who adapts Sibeon’s (1990) distinction between formal and informal theory, suggesting that there are three types of theory: l theories of what social work is; l theories of how to do social work; l theories of the service user’s world.

The process should allow you to explore and identify your own values through the reflective process. 13. Reflection can best be measured by evaluating the degree to which you can articulate your own reflection on reflection and describe the process as well as in terms of outcomes. Tate (2004) believes also that reflective approaches to learning are flexible enough to be undertaken individually, in pairs or in groups and so it represents a useful process for social work practice learning. Many of the models that have been developed and adapted for use in social work derive from Kolb’s learning cycle (Kolb, 1984) and from the work of Boud et al.

1985) is also particularly valuable for social work education as it integrates many different aspects of the learning process. It is similar to Kolb’s model but attends to a more holistic approach to learning from experience, considering the emotional impact of events as well as the cognitive processes involved in learning. It involves returning to an event, incident or experience, considering the process in detail at an emotional and cognitive level and then re-evaluating the experience in the light of experience, knowledge from other sources and experimentation.
