This workshop combines theoretical material including Hawkins and Shohet’s model of supervision with very practical information regarding the tasks of the supervisor, what are the attributes and skills of effective supervisors as well as some of the pitfalls and risks that supervisors can fall into.
The workshop will also provide attendees very concrete guidance as to what to focus on during a supervision session, useful questions to guide the supervisee; it also provides detailed suggestions on establishing reflective practice skills (an analysis of a session that gives information to the supervisee that enhances the decision-making process and enables them to have a clearer understanding of their own strengths and weaknesses as well as identifying transference and counter-transference issues). The latter part of the day attends to how examination of transference, counter-transference and parallel process (what is happening in the therapy is similarly happening in supervision) issues can be utilised to enhance therapeutic outcomes.
The workshop is primarily practical in nature to the extent that participants will have ample opportunity to practice the material in dyads and triads to complement and ‘ground’ the material presented. Ari will also demonstrate the material in constructed role plays. Specific exercises will be provided to those attending on-line, although for maximum learning, it is suggested (but not essential) that on-line attendees have another counsellor/therapist present if possible.
