Reflective Supervision: The Use of Rupture & Repair to Further
Relationship-Based IMH Practice

The art of reflective supervision is a parallel process to relationship-based practice with very young children and families.  Reflective supervision is defined by a unique supervisor-supervisee relationship that is transformative, grounding, and supportive, similar to the relationship opportunities offered by infant-family professionals in  work with infants, toddlers, and families.  In order to develop a reflective supervision experience that is authentic, a reflective supervisor mist be able to skillfully use rupture and repair, which necessitates a high degree of self-awareness and use of self.  This workshop will use case material to provide participants with opportunities to explore and deepen their understanding of these concepts.
