The Appreciative reflective team is a method that emphasises appreciation as a source to explore and learn, in a systematic way, from the situations in which they suceed in their own work, highlighting the value of locally developed learning. The method is developed by a research fellowship in the Municipality of Re in Vestfold, Norway, drawing on the Norwegian psychiatrist Tom Andersen’s concept for developing «powerless learning processes» in teams.
