Reflective Reading

Catherine Tufariello. Center for Civic Reflection, 2014.

Serving as a healthcare provider is hard and often stressful work.  Civic reflection supports team-building and self-care for for busy healthcare professionals. Reflective Reading: A Civic Reflection Starter Kit for Health Care Teams features eighteen readings and five images that consistently have sparked rich, thought-provoking discussions among physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and other members of interdisciplinary healthcare teams. The toolkit also includes tips on leading Reflective Reading sessions and a detailed discussion plan for each text. This publication was funded by a generous grant from Prince Charitable Trusts.
