Creative Storytelling in Supervision

Loading Map....

9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Centre for Theology & Ministry

 Understand the power that story narratives have to bring forth self-reflection and experiential discovery in supervision.

Facilitators: Dr Alison Strasser & Adam McLean

In supervision we speak about our clients and their issues as if we are telling the truth, with the hope of gaining clarity or some revelations on where to go or how to respond. Yet, as supervisors, we know that we only hear versions of truth, as what we hear is filtered through both the lens of the supervisee and our own. There is no such thing as objective listening; we bring our own culture, values, beliefs, assumptions and personal triggers into the room. Even the questions supervisors ask will shape what information is shared and how it is related.

Story telling can be a powerful tool in supervision. We are brought up on fairy tales and myths and these story narratives have the power to connect supervisors, supervisees and their clients to both the uniqueness of life issues and a link to the collective whole. Stories also provide a strategy for focusing in and reflecting on practice using both right and left hemispheres of the brain, the intuitive and logical, both of which we need for better practice.

In this workshop, we’ll explore some of the creative methods of revealing our client stories to bring forth the self-reflection and experiential discovery that is at the heart of good supervision.
