Critical Self Reflection

The term critical self-reflection refers to the 'power to discern oneself from others through personal and professional reflection on strengths, weaknesses, talents, and goals. This is in addition to knowledge about social identities and the factors that influence the lives of individuals and groups. Central to critical self-reflection is the notion of self-compassion; an important skill and prerequisite to feeling compassion for others. Critical self-reflection is vital to inclusive learning by laying the groundwork for self-esteem and self-knowledge necessary to creating meaningful and safe relationships with different people.
