Reflection is re-examined in the context of professional practice from the stance of a social worker within a broadened horizon brought about by work done in teacher and nursing education.
Based on a review on recent literature, the multiple dimensions of reflection are unravelled.
The importance of understanding the social worker and service user as a person in the process of reflection is pointed out.
Co-reflection is introduced to extend the parties involved in reflection from a single person to dyads or triads consisting of teacher-students or worker-colleagues.
The personal experience of the author in a co-reflection process involved with students is put forward as an illustration.
Finally, the paper calls attention to the importance of moral courage involved in the process of reflection.
