Tips for Using Reflection in Your Practice

In family coaching AND in family coaching via telepractice, it is paramount to be reflective in what you do as the therapist, what the caregiver does, what the child does, and how things work.

Here is a list of reflective question ideas to get your own ideas rolling:

  • How do you think he will respond to that?

  • How would you like to try that activity?

  • What did you think about how that went?

  • How did that feel for you?

  • What do you think about her response?

  • What was her response to that activity?

  • What other ideas do you have to accomplish your goal?

  • What times during the day would be the best times to practice this activity?

  • How did that go compared to when you’ve tried this in the past?


Hint: If you keep a carrier phrase in your head to insert words into for the moment, such as, “How did ______ compare to ___________?” or “What other ideas do you have to ________?,” you will find being reflective in practice much easier. Start with one or two phrases and expand from there. Practice using reflection in your therapy and therapeutic reflection will become easier and easier.
