Isang mapanimdim o repleksyong sanaysay ay isang sanaysay na kung saan ang manunulat ay
sinusuri ang kanyang mga karanasan sa buhay. Pagkatapos nitoy magsusulat na tungkol sa mga
karanasan, at kung paano ito nagbago, binuo o lumago mula sa mga karanasan.
Depende sa magbabasa ang pagbabago ng format/ayos ng isang repleksyong sanaysay.
Gayunman, ang ilang mga pangunahing elementong nakapaloob sa isang tipikal na repleksyong
sanaysay ay ang panimula, katawan at konklusyon.

Nilalaman ng panimula:
Ang unang bahagi ay ang pagpapakilala, na kung saan kinikilala ang mga paksa at nagbibigay ng
isang pangkalahatang-ideya iyong mga reaksyo nakapaloob sa sanaysay. Ang pagpapakilala ng
talata ay nagtatapos sa Tesis na pahayag o Thesis statement, na kinikilala kung ang iyong mga
inaasahan ay matugunan at kung ano ang iyong natutunan. Ang Thesis statement ay nagsisilbing
ang gabay sa transisyon ng sanaysay.
Ang pagtatapos bumabalot up ang iyong mga sanaysay, magsilbi bilang ng iba pang mga
bookend sa nagsasabi at nagpapatunay ng iyong thesis statement. Sa binabalangkas ang
konklusyon, na makilala ang mga sanaysay na pahayag at magdagdag ng mga pangunahing
punto mula sa talata katawan bilang isang pagbabalik-tanaw. Huwag magdagdag ng bagong
impormasyon sa konklusyon, at siguraduhin na tukuyin ang pagsasara ng pahayag ng iyong
reflection paper.

Katawan:
Ang katawan ng iyong papel kinikilala ang tatlong (o higit pa, depende sa haba ng iyong papel)
pangunahing puntos na sumusuporta sa iyong thesis statement. Ang bawat talata sa katawan ay
dapat magsimula sa isang paksa na pangungusap. Ang natitirang bahagi ng bawat talata
sinusuportahan ng iyong paksa sa pangungusap. Isaisip na ang isang transition pangungusap sa
dulo ng bawat talata ay lumilikha ng isang papel na daloy lohikal at madaling basahin. Kapag
lumilikha ng outline, kilalanin ang mga paksa pangungusap para sa bawat talata, at magdagdag
ng mga sumusuporta sa pahayag na ito, na katibayan, at ang iyong sariling mga karanasan o mga
reaksyon sa mga paksa sa ilalim.

The issue of termination is an important aspect of the counselling process because it
marks the end of a relationship between a counseller and client. The process of
termination can be a quite painful and emotional experience as clients can often
experience feelings of abandonment and hopelessness and counsellers can experience
feelings of guilt (Anthony & Pagano 1998). Personally, I feel that this is perfectly
understandable as a client and counseller relationship is at a deep level where the feelings
and problems of the client are being experienced also by the counseller through empathic
measures. As Davies (2005, p. 786) points out, counseling involves both participants in
the psychoanalytic process in a profoundly mutual, deeply felt, and deeply loving
relationship. Thus, termination of such a relationship can be a life-altering experience.
This is similar, I believe, to the termination of a relationship between close partners; an
experience I have undergone myself. Nevertheless, if the termination is marked by
emotional honesty, respect for the feelings of the other, and a gentleness that speaks to the
vulnerability of the moment (Davies, 2005, p. 783), as it was in my case, then the end of
the relationship can be seen positively, as a new beginning where both parties learn to
become more independent and grow as individuals. Similarly, the termination of the
counseller and client relationship can also be seen in a positive light
Introduces topic: 'termination'.
Discusses expert observations and explanations of why it can be painful. Explains, using
reasoning, how the student can personally relate. Then, uses expert explanations to back that up.
Raises own experience of a romantic breakup and suggests the two are similar.
Draws particularly on the way in which the breakup was framed positively - supports this with
theory. Then concludes by suggesting that counselling termination can be equally positive.
How do I start my reflective writing?
You base your reflective writing on a reflective thinking process. And the reflective process starts
with you. Reflection involves taking a pause to examine your own thoughts, beliefs, values,
attitudes and assumptions, which form the foundation of your understanding. Revisit your prior
experiences and knowledge, and consider how you think and why you think the way you do.
There is no absolute right or wrong way of reflective thinking. But the key questions in
reflective thinking are often how and why rather than what.

Some guiding questions for reflective thinking are:


What happened during that event or experience? And why did it happen?
What was my role in the event? And why did I adopt that particular role?
What were my feelings during that experience? And why did I feel that way?
What were my thoughts during that experience? And why did I think that way?
How do I interpret what I experienced or observed?
What might this experience mean in the context of my course?
What other perspectives, theories or concepts could be applied to interpret the situation?
How can I learn from this experience?
The event or experience in itself is not important.
What is important is your reaction to it, and how it has shaped your thinking and learning.
What your lecturer is looking for is how well you can analyse and reflect on events in order
to learn from them, or how much you are able to relate your study of theories to real life
situations and practices.
