|I contextualize supervision as a conscious and thoughtful experience, one that is imbedded in a cultural context exploring theories of social and cultural differences. Focusing on mentorship, leadership, cultural humility and mutual learning through the process of creativity , supervision can become the platform to explore the complex issues that social workers face such as
Race, class, gender, sexuality and disability intersect.
There’s no human endeavour that can’t be improved with a little creativity, and social work is no exception. While social workers can draw upon any number of talking therapy and talking supervision, there are times when talk isn’t helpful or can’t be summoned.
As an Arts Therapist and Social worker I a hold full conviction that creativity and arts can open a back door to the psyche, soul and body. Allowing Supervisees to draw from that which they cannot be put into words, thus catalysing subsequent therapeutic conversations, and self exploration.
We will explore supervision in a way which involves the multifaceted ways of communicating, This can aid the process of connecting implicit traumas of the self into explicit knowledge , thus informing our social work practice by exploring the multilayers of trauma that social workers can experience as a result of our own and that of the work we engage and our clients traumas. In and become exposed.
Creative arts therapies Social Work Supervision can involve the use of the arts—visual art, music, dance and movement, drama, and poetry.
