Bringing your best to supervision

A practical workshop for Supervisors and Supervisees focusing upon effective approaches and optimal supervision outcomes.

This workshop explores how both supervisors and supervisees provide input towards key processes in supervision. The topics addressed in this workshop are: silence in supervision, triggers in supervision, self-reflection in supervision and preparation for supervision.

Additionally, knowing how to enquire without asking questions in session is a necessary tool for both supervisors & supervisees. Participants will be invited to reflect, practice & challenge their supervisory practices and participation through individual and group exercises, case studies and discussion. 

Self-reflection and practice sessions will take you on a journey of self-discovery regarding who you are and the roles you enact in supervision. 


Learning objectives of this workshop: 

1. Recognise the need for and engage with silence in supervision. 
2. Identify and manage emotional triggers in supervision. 
3. Allow for self-reflection in supervision. 
4. Preparing well for supervision. 
5. Apply questioning techniques without actually asking questions.
