Michael Lang and Susanne Terry Establish The Reflective Practice Institute

Michael Lang and Susanne Terry have established The Reflective Practice Institute – See: www.reflectivepracticeinstitute.com.

Reflective practice, as a process for learning from and through experience, has become commonly accepted in helping professions—most particularly, nursing, education, and social work.  Having been introduced to conflict resolution practitioners in Michael’s 2000 book, The Making of a Mediator: Developing Artistry in Practice, reflective practice has become an recognized and widely accepted means for improving the quality of practice.

Susan and Michael have been friends and colleagues for more years than they care to recall, having met in the mid 80’s at a New Hampshire mediation conference.  Since then, as practitioners, educators, authors, and mentors, they have been teaching, writing about, and applying reflective practice principles and methods.  

The Reflective Practice Institute is an association of practitioners committed to the principles and methods of Reflective Practice as applied to mediators, coaches, facilitators and other conflict engagement practitioners.  Susan and Michael, along with Institute Associates, deliver a variety of education, coaching and training programs, including:

  • teaching theory and the use of Reflective Practice,·       
  • assisting in developing and facilitating Reflective Practice Groups, ·       
  • offering individualized mentoring
  • providing information and resources about the theory and application of Reflective Practice
  • training practitioners to become Reflective Practice Group leaders
  • offering certificate trainings designed to meet the needs of organized programs and
  • speaking engagements and workshops to introduce participants to reflective practice
