WRITING A REFLECTING ACCOUNT AND AN ACTION PLAN: AN INDICATIVE GUIDE FOR PSYCHOLOGY STUDENTS


In this paper, I outline the steps towards writing a reflecting account and an action plan of a position statement. Basic steps into such a reflective account will provide psychology students with some ideas how to work on their position statements. Specific examples are not given for everyone’s position statement is different from another. This paper is about a generic exploration so that students who will read it to pick and mix ideas from it with their own decisions as how advancing psychological knowledge and experience could sound like after they graduate. Finally, literature in the end will also be a general one, just a few good reference books a student could have a look at for further accumulation of knowledge on this topic.
