Body & Self & Coordinating the Political, Personal & Professional Self in Supervision Melbourne

Two 1-day Supervisor workshops presented by International Guest

Glenda Fredman

An Invitation to bring Body & Self to Supervision (1 day) Thursday 21 March 2019
In this workshop, we will start from the position that we speak, not only with our words, but also with our bodies – with bodily position, posture and gesture; with tone of voice; with our felt bodily responses to each other. We embody the cultures of our ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, ability, age; how our bodies express and are shaped by the differential power associated with those aspects of our identities. You will walk away with a repetoire of practices for working with embodiment in supervision

Coordinating our Political, Personal & Professional Selves in Supervision (1 day) Friday 22 March 2019
This workshop will off the opportunity to explore the multiple contexts that inform and shape your practice and experience as practitioners and supervisors including personal (family, culture, gender, religion, class, sexuality, age, race, health, disability); political (moral and ethical positions and commitments) as well as professional (training, services/organisations, preferred practice model/s, clinical experience).
Experiential exercises to reflect on the abilities, knowledge and values you draw from your multiple contexts
Experiential exercises in which you can use your own multiple contexts to supervise
