Facilitating Reflective Supervision Groups in Work with Families
Reflective Group Supervision is an innovative approach to supervision and consultation that supports staff in understanding client needs through a lens of curiosity, non-judgment, and empathy. It is a collaborative process that guides staff to reflect on their own experiences in their work and then to address the clinical needs of children and their families. The process of a reflective group supervision session follows four steps: (1) attending to staff experience and needs, (2) understanding the family system, (3) being mindful of the parallel process between supervisors, staff and families, and (4) identifying clinical interventions. These group sessions provide a safe and supportive environment for emotional sharing, peer support, and creative problem solving that enable staff to develop interventions that are attuned to their client’s needs. They are instrumental in increasing staff’s capacities to be reflective about and self and other, decreasing burn-out, and increasing staff collaboration and support.
This workshop is for professionals who provide clinical supervision in mental health and community based settings.
Class size will be limited to 15 students.
