Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network and MI-AIMH

Early Childhood Learning Series

A Collaborative Space for Discussion & Deeper Understanding of Classic & Contemporary Themes in IECMH Reflective Supervision & Consultation

This training is for those in the DWIHN who currently provide (or have provided) reflective supervision to staff, interns, teachers, etc.

This training is sponsored generously by the Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network (DWHN). Therefore, training attendees need to be employed by a Detroit Wayne Infant Mental Health program and a coupon code is required to register. 

This reflective supervision & consultation (RS/C) training series will focus on classic and contemporary themes that have been identified within clinical and research literature and real-life RS/C experiences. ‘Classic’ themes include the influence of race, diversity, bias, and privilege within RS/C; the use of attachment, ecological, and systems theories to inform the development and use of the RS/C relationship within the field; and the roles of supervisors and supervisees in the creation of this ‘relationship for learning’ that supports professional growth and development.  This training will allow for opportunities for conversation about these themes and identify ways they are interconnected.  In addition, the trainers view this as an opportunity for collaboration to identify training topics that are currently impacting the field and the implementation of reflective supervision.  Current events such as the pandemic, racial violence, and exposed systemic racism and disparities, are testing us personally and professionally; and they are testing our knowledge and theoretical foundations.  The growth of RS/C has also found many supervisors in unfamiliar territory, as they provide this unique type of supervision within non-clinical or mental health settings.  We will leave space to have conversations about what is missing in reflective supervision/consultation training – and then create those training opportunities together.  RS/C is an opportunity for professional growth, and to experience the joy, challenge, anguish, and beauty of this work.  This series will be thought-provoking and challenging and will include vignettes, breakout discussion and theoretical material – this will be a ‘hands on’ training – be prepared to participate and be engaged!

Dates: May 6th, June 10th; August 12th & September 16th
Attendance at all four dates is strongly encouraged.

Times: 9am – 12pm – all four dates
