Supervising IMH Court Cases Part II: Baby Baby, Who’s Got the Baby?
The best intentions of IMH supervisors to offer their supervisees a safe and secure space for reflective processing of their casework can so quickly become anxiety-filled when the focus is on infants, toddlers, families and caregivers who have open foster care/courts cases. Building on material presented and pondered during Part One, and drawing on case vignettes and case examples brought forward by the participants, this discussion-based training will particularly highlight the tensions that can understandably arise between supervisor and supervisee when speaking for the baby may bring fears of negative reactions from any of the case participants, including parents, family members, caregivers, professionals, or system policies. What might our fight/flight/freeze response to such worries mean for the babies? How can a supervisor encourage interactive reflectiveness that will help to hold the therapist through thick and thin without loosening a securely sheltering hold on the baby? This training is only for those supervisors that attended the first training on March 29, 2017.
