Reflective Supervision – Part Two: Partnering for Growth, Understanding and Depth

Every reflective supervision/consultation relationship is uniquely developed, with each participant bringing a lifelong, cumulative history of individual and social experience that over time shapes that relationship and guides its growth. Such developmental journeys are bound to go through periods of change, as new events will inevitably occur and will impact our lives and our relationships. Assuming reflective supervision/consultation goals of collaborative partnership, this highly interactive training will provide many opportunities for guided small and large group discussion, drawing on both structured vignettes and participants’ own experiences to explore relationship nuances, including signs of unsettledness and discordance, preparation for coping with confusion and weathering storms, and readiness and hopefulness for repair that can support participants’ renewal of commitment to strengthening and deepening the working relationship.

This workshop will be for those providing individual or group reflective supervision. It is expected that attendees have received their own reflective supervision as well as provided reflective supervision to at least one professional and been in the infant-family field for at least 5 years.

Date: Thursday, September 27, 2018

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of developing and maintaining an ongoing sense of the health and overall status of each reflective supervision relationship.
  • Increase awareness of relationship nuances, including periods of both relative ease and heightened tension that are an inevitable part of all relationship development.
  • Recognize signs of unsettledness and discordance as they arise from within the reflective supervisor, and consider specific ways in which the concepts of parallel process can be applied to clarify sources of heightened tension impacting the reflective supervision relationship.
  • Increase awareness of how stormy periods can be weathered in order for the supervisor to hold both the supervisee and their relationship, even while coping with troubling awareness of the rippling effects of heightened tension on direct service delivery, cross-system collaboration, and reflective supervision.
  • Identify specific ways for supervisees to use self-awareness to move from frustration to readiness and hopefulness for relationship repair, and to encourage development of similar feelings in their supervisees.
  • Understand more fully the reflective supervisor’s role in guiding the supervisee through the process of resolving difficulties in the reflective relationship, and how the active steps toward reparation can actually deepen the relationship and strengthen the goals of reflective supervision.
