Reflective Practice is an Annual Journal that Provides a Framework to Promote Critical Reflection on
Formation and Supervision of Ministry in Various Contexts and from Diverse Faith Traditions.
The name of the Journal embodies its focus. Good practice relies on constant reflection. The capacity for critical self-reflection is essential for effective religious leadership and ministry practice. The disciplines of formation and supervision in ministry supported by this Journal include clinical pastoral education, supervision in pastoral counseling, supervised field education and formation in spiritual direction. The Journal seeks to enhance the work of formation and supervision in ministry by soliciting articles from a variety of religious and ethnic/cultural perspectives. We hope that readers will learn from reflecting on the practice of supervision and formation in disciplines and contexts and religious traditions quite different than their own.
