Nebraska Center on Reflective Practice

The Nebraska Center on Reflective Practice (NCRP) provides training, mentoring, consultation, and evaluation to individuals and organizations in need of reflective practice.

The human service and early childhood workforce is engaged in work that is both rewarding and taxing. The emotionally intrusive nature of the work often leads to high rates of vicarious trauma, stress and burnout - all of which affect the quality of services provided by an organization. Reflective practice assists in mitigating the effects of the emotionally intrusive nature of the work by helping individuals examine their current and past actions, emotions, experiences, and responses in order to evaluate their work performance and learn to improve in the future. Reflective practice promotes a workplace culture of collaboration and accountability.
