Reflective Practice and Creative Supervision

Course Aim

Reflective Practice is an essential skill for anyone who’s results are dependent on communicating and influencing others. It’s what helps us to differentiate between our own ‘stuff’ and the ‘stuff’ other people carry into interactions with us. Reflective Practice helps us to negotiate our way around the most complex of relationships and to remain objective in the most difficult of situations. Reflective Practice is about self awareness, awareness of others, accepting and valuing diversity, understanding our vulnerabilities, caring for self, and increasing our resilience. With such a big job to do it warrants some time spent on developing this skill, don’t you think?

This two-day programme takes participants on a journey of self-awareness by exploring elements of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator [MBTI], as well as change theories and models of Reflective Practice. There is a strong emphasis on individual strengths, as well as working with approaches that differ from our own. Time is also dedicated to exploring ‘self-care’ as an essential element of professional practice. The journey continues with an exploration of creative supervision practices, which includes practical tools for problem solving and prioritising as well as case analysis using creative methods. Finally, time is spent on developing key coaching skills and supervision practice, which will enable participants to facilitate effective and impactful group supervisions confidently in their own setting.
