05 Oct Creative Supervision Conversations for Therapists and Coaches
How can creativity be catalysed in supervision? Taking an imaginative slant to a supervision issue loosens up thinking quickly and can introduce humour and playfulness into the session. Putting an entirely different conceptual frame around the situation can be enlightening and fun. Paradoxically, this is particularly useful when the mood has become overly heavy and serious. This course provides creative ideas for any supervisory relationship, whether the supervisee or supervisor are finding they’re hitting roadblocks, on the border of burnout, or having issues within the supervisory relationship. Good clinical supervision relies on the relationship between supervisor and their supervisee. No matter what the supervisory relationship, whether it’s online supervision, supportive supervision, clinical supervision, or professional supervision, it’s imperative for it to provide an environment for building a fundamentally supportive relationship to yield better results for the practitioner, the client, and the supervisor.
Often times in supervision, if we look at things differently we will achieve a different outcome. This Creative Supervision Conversations course will provide different methods, perspectives and ideas for your future supervision practice, or sessions with your supervisor, or supervisee. This course will enrich you and will provide techniques and ideas to increase your effectiveness as a supervisor and to help your supervisee grow professionally with ease. All therapists, supervisors and coaches can benefit from this course as it will assist with different and creative perspectives, particularly in a time of grief, loss and trauma that we have had throughout the world, post-COVID.
You will learn how to start new conversations in your supervisory sessions and how reflective supervision can enhance the supervisory relationship. You will uncover a different, creative model of supervision that will expand your therapeutic or supervisory practice to include creative thinking and curiosity. The course will also explore ideas for self-care that go beyond standard approaches. As a supervisee, you will explore modes and new ideas for working with your supervisor to get the most out of supervision. It is a course for both the supervisor and the supervisee to learn from.
As a supervisor, you will extend your repertoire significantly to meet every challenge of a professionally difficult conversation but in such a way that the relationships and trust will grow rather than suffer. Observations of modern practice and possible future ways forward will be explored. All this will be illustrated by case studies of creative therapeutic practice and how best to supervise creative practitioners to let them spread their wings.
You will be required to learn as you go through doing various exercises, so prepare to stop the recording at times and do the work. It will be fun! We have added two learning hours to this recording so that you are provided to with space to learn, reflect and improve through analysing various approaches and techniques.
