Supervisory Relationship: Difficulties and Delights

Saturday 30th January 09:30 - 16:30


This workshop will include a live demonstration of supervision by Robin Shohet, co-author of Supervision in the Helping Professions In a world dominated by an audit culture and where relationships are becoming increasingly transactional, the supervisory relationship is of vital importance. Through good role modeling, it upholds the value of relationship as a vehicle for transformation. How does the supervisor avoid becoming part of a culture that is increasingly moving towards avoidance of risk and defensive practice? In this workshop we will use Appreciative Inquiry as our starting point and take courage as our theme – the courage to take risks, be honest and vulnerable and own what might seem like mistakes, but in fact are potentially vehicles for growth.  This workshop is suitable for all health professionals including clinical and counselling psychologists, doctors, counsellors, social workers, general and mental health nurses and CBT practitioners.
