This 3-day workshop provides everything both new and experienced supervisors need to know to provide excellent supervision.

If you have ever felt you were supervising by the “seat of your pants”, been unsure if you were meeting your supervisee’s needs, or questioned your competence as a supervisor…

Come to this workshop and learn how to provide excellent reflective supervision and how to constantly improve the supervision you provide.

I will provide:

  • A thoroughly enjoyable workshop;
  • A safe, reflective learning environment;
  • Practical frameworks and models;
  • Opportunities to learn from others;
  • A comprehensive handbook to take away.

You will learn:

  • What quality supervision looks like;
  • How to establish and maintain a trusting, productive supervisory relationship;
  • The value and purpose of the individually negotiated supervision agreement;
  • How to structure a supervisory discussion to promote learning and growth;
  • The supervisor’s “toolbox” and how to choose your tools to most benefit the supervisee;
  • How to model and promote reflective practice with supervisees;
  • How to engage supervisees in the supervision process. The “5-Eyed Supervisee”;
  • How to create a climate where supervisees feel safe to disclose ethical dilemmas.
