What is a Critical Reflection?
A critical reflection is analytical, emphatical and relatable. A good critical reflection entails the following features:
1) Analysis of the stimulus, or the trigger such as a movie, an article, a book, or even an event. In this assignment, your stimuli are the three videos prescribed for you to watch.
2) Critical and emotional response to the stimulus as a whole, or issues in the stimulus.
3) Relevant justifications with evidences and examples drawn from the stimulus and external sources.
“The stigma surrounding mental health in “Adiwiraku” is a reflection of the poverty faced by certain groups of people in the rural and suburban areas -and Malaysia as a whole. The impacts of poverty are broad; from hindering education (as portrayed by Kemboja and her family) to lack of mental health literacy (as potrayed by Alia and her mother). Women and children are often on the worse receiving end of the impacts as they are less empowered group in the Malaysian community (Ng & Jung, 2016). Effective measures must be taken to improve on eradicate poverty and ensure that Malaysians have access to basic necessities, such as education and proper mental health care”.
