Taking a Deeper Dive into Reflective Supervision:
Zoom Training

About the Training

How do home visitation supervisors attend to all that their staff need in order to offer services to families that really support the well-being and relational health of their very young children? This training and consultation series will provide an opportunity for exploring this important question in depth. The integration of reflective supervision elements into supervisory relationships that have primarily consisted of other aspects of programming and administration enhances the working relationship between supervisor and staff, which then positively impacts the staff-family relationship, but it is not without its challenges!

You are invited to participate in a small learning community of home visitation program supervisors that will meet over the course of 19 months. Two days of didactic training and interactive reflection experiences will kick off the series. 90-minute monthly Reflective Supervision Consultation sessions via Zoom technology will follow, offering supervisors the opportunity to receive Reflective Supervision Consultation related to their supervision dilemmas, and to practice their own Reflective Supervision skills with guidance. The series will include another in-person training in October 2019 with a wrap up day of training and reflective practice experiences in April 2020.

Topics will include: how to begin, essential elements of Reflective Supervision Consultation, balancing Reflective Supervision Consultation with program supervision, attending to important structural elements, self and other awareness, holding emotionally charged material, and more. Each training day and virtual Reflective Supervision Consultation session will offer opportunities to observe and practice being in a Reflective Supervision Consultation relationship, so commitment to attend and participate is important!
