Reminiscence Therapy Research and Reflection
A 27 page paper combining personal reflection on nursing practice with a literature review and analysis of research to formulate a method of putting research into practice. Even though reminiscence therapy gains mixed reports in formal research efforts, its benefits appear to be clear. Nurses using reminiscence therapy are not encouraging their patients to retreat into the past and therefore cease living in the present, but rather facilitating their patients’ ability to complete their life reviews and to gain a measure of satisfaction from the cumulative effect of the events of their lives.

Reflection, Experience, and Training Competence Building
A 6 page paper discussing the need to link experience and reflection in achieving practical competence. Formal training provides the technical knowledge needed to provide competent care in the psychiatric setting, but formal training also can be seen as only the beginning point of building competence. Experience and reflection on that experience are critical factors. Training allows the new nurse to provide technically competent care, but full competence and greatest effectiveness emerges only when the nurse is able to combine experience and reflection on that experience with basic and ongoing training.
