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, along with Institute Associates, deliver a variety of education, coaching and training programs, including:
