Many professions now view supervision as integral to the promotion of best and ethical practice. It was often assumed that becoming a supervisor or manager simply evolved out of experience and clinical practice, without the recognition or support that these positions carry an additional skills set in their own right. This training teaches the skills required to become an confident and competent supervisor with a renewed enthusiasm for the work. Each module introduces the key language and skills that lie at the core of a good supervisory practice, and explores these concepts through case control and experiential learning out of a transpersonal psychological model.
Personal and Professional Development
In order to build a deep capacity for self-reflection the training explores both the personal and professional development of the supervisee and that of the supervisor. This enhances the ability to handle unconscious triggers, hidden wounds and relationship conflicts that impact on the professional work, creating a compassionate container where the supervision can be both a robust and enjoyable experience for supervisor and supervisee alike.
The training addresses the multidimensional process of supervision. It explores how understanding the simultaneous interactions between the clients, supervisee, supervisor, organisation and wider culture or context is important in order to have an awareness of the complete picture.
Using each participant’s own therapeutic model we intergrate the core skill of a ‘mindful observing gaze’ in order to track the multidimential processes that are an ongoing aspect of supervision. In this way it becomes possible to inentify where the heart of the process lies in the moment.
This training will deepen participants’ understanding and experience of the supervisory relationship and how the style of a supervisor can be used with awareness to suport the reflective practice of the supevisee.
Organisational and Cultural Change
Supervision happens within, and is impacted by, the organisational and cultural context. This training will provide a map and tools for understanding this context. It will show how supervision can become a powerful catalyst to enable engagement with the diversity of any organisation in order to bring about cultural change
