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.

This training 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.  This training is intended for anyone who is looking to deepen their reflective practice skills and explore the ways that challenges in the supervisory relationship can pave the way for relational growth.
