About the Journal

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 the readers will learn from reflecting on their practice as well as the

supervision and formation in disciplines and contexts and

religious traditions different than their own.
