									                      Use of Self Literature Review

Naomi Craig at the Higher Education Academy Psychology Network is
collating references to the Use of Self in learning and teaching about mental

We are interested in exploring:

       where ideas about the use of self feature in articles about learning and
        teaching across the disciplines (and particularly where these relate to
        learning and teaching about mental health)
       what concepts this issue links to (e.g. reflective practice, emotional
       what practical examples are given of teaching approaches

We are trying to identify key journals within in each subject area to begin our
search in. For example, Social Work Education; Medical Education; the
Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing etc.

We are also trying to identify the key search terms to use eg emotional
intelligence, survivor involvement, reflective practice, relationship based
practice etc.

Finally, we are planning to limit our searches to within the last 2-3 years,
however at this stage any examples would be gratefully received.

To give you some ideas, some examples have been provided below;

   Freshwater, D. & Stickley, T. (2004) The heart of the art: emotional
    intelligence in nurse education, Nursing Inquiry 11 (2), 91–98.

   Vijayakrishnan, A., J. Rutherford, et al. (2006). "Service user involvement
    in training: the trainees' view." Psychiatric Bulletin 30: 303-305.

   Skumsnes, A. (2007). "Including student narratives in teaching." Journal of
    Teaching in Social Work 27(3/4): 185-197.

   Haidet, P. & Stein, H. (2006) The Role of the Student-Teacher
    Relationship in the Formation of Physicians: The Hidden Curriculum as
    Process, Journal of General Internal Medicine 21 (1), 16–20.
