Changes in the context of our practices such as budgetary cuts, increased caseloads and managed care require that supervisors focus on administrative oversight, at the expense of deeper reflection on feelings, thoughts and values that arise in relationships. This six-session course with reflective supervision pioneer, Rebecca Shahmoon Shanok, is for practitioners who would like to improve supervisory skills, integrate reflective supervision into an administrative approach, as well as for those practitioners who would like to be supervised reflectively on their cases.
In this interactive-collaborative, open, confidential and empathic workgroup, students will become familiar with the reflective supervision process as the instructor demonstrates individual and “fishbowl” supervision, followed by a debriefing. Readings will be integrated into the course based on the interests and needs of participants.
- Recognize and know the choreography of all reflective supervision sessions.
- Become better able to use the principles of reflective supervision.
- Tackle the challenge of being a “boss” and reflective supervisor simultaneously.
- Become increasingly knowledgeable about the range of issues which can be productively worked through in reflective supervision.
