Collaborative Supervision workshop, July 2016

uo workshop 2015

Supporting colleagues through one to one and team/peer group supervision is such a central aspect of our work that we eagerly await this annual  opportunity to put our heads together with others whose roles include a focus on supervision.  We arrive at these workshops with many recent stories of supervision conversations that have challenged and inspired us and leave with new understandings based on the challenging questions and reflections raised by participants.

Throughout this highly experiential workshop, we will draw on narrative and other collaborative approaches to explore ways to:

  • Establish a supervisory alliance that prioritises mutual growth and learning as well as accountability,
  • Identify colleagues’ learning goals based on existing competencies, concerns and hopes,
  • Deconstruct experiences of ‘success’ in ways that appreciate “tacit knowledge”, recognise emerging skills and acknowledge the ways success is supported by others, including clients and others
  • Support colleagues to track learning themes and ways they are holding onto important values and beliefs through their practice,
  • Define practice issues, struggles and ‘failures’ in ways that avoid blame, acknowledge context and sbooks imagehift the focus toward the skills and learnings that have been enabling them to “get through” so far,
  • Ensure that the voice of the ‘client’ is present as much as possible in reflections on practice
  • Identify, define and deconstruct ethical dilemmas in ways that honour multiple perspectives and intentions
  • Elicit and offer constructive feedback, even when there are concerns or significant differences of opinion or approach.
  • Provide information and reflections on our own experiences without imposing or constructing a ‘hierarchy of knowledges’
  • Bring colleagues together in small peer group settings to make “supervision” a more collective and creative experience
  • Collaboratively review together the value and effectiveness of supervision

The workshop will be largely experiential, including live examples, structured exercises and opportunities for discussion and questions
