The best teachers are not outside of us – they are inside. Collaborative reflection in supervision can transform our experiences into learning. Daphne Hewson and Michael Carroll highlight the importance of Reflective Space. They provide guidelines on creating safe Reflective Space and is written for both supervisors and practitioners – it takes two to tango.
