LPI Model Overview

LPI Critical Reflective Practice Model


Critical reflective practice is used across the disciplines to enhance self-awareness, build professional knowledge and to assist in engagement and decision-making, for practice excellence. The LPI Critical Reflective Practice Model was written by two Canadian social workers, Dianne Prevatt-Hyles and Jana Vinsky, who were both practitioners and taught within the Human Services internationally, and within Schools of Social Work. The LPI Critical Reflective Practice Model draws on social work theory including Narrative Therapy, Critical Social Work and Anti-Oppressive Practice. The Model can be used for reflection before, during and after practice moments. It is strengths focused - building upon good practice; and is holistic with an emphasis on mind/body/spirit and the need for congruence between our espoused values and our practice. The Model supports the integration of several perspectives important to good practice, including equity, trauma informed practice, relationship building and leadership.
