Children's Institute: A Foundation Training In Reflective Supervision - Reflective supervision, reflective consultation, and reflective practice are terms used for the approaches now considered best practices for providers, supervisors, and agencies where stress, secondary trauma, high turnover, and service quality are significant concerns. This interactive virtual training is designed for supervisors in the infant-family early childhood field, including mental health, early childhood education, home visitation, and other child and family services.
Reflective Supervision - In this session participants will explore the components of reflective supervision, observe and practice key skills associated with reflective practice and explore strategies for providing responsive versus reactive responses in the supervisory relationship.
Supervisor Training: Reflective Group Supervision [Online] - In these challenging times providing clinical supervision and support to staff is complex, strenuous and essential. The typical model of coming to the supervisor and getting advice on what to do with clients does not adequately meet staff members' needs. Supervisors need a different model that attends, first, to the staff members themselves and then their experiences with clients. They also need to understand clients' experiences as embedded in the larger systems that significantly impact them including race, class, language, and immigration status. This online training is for supervisors who would like to expand their supervision skills to be able to meet these multifaceted needs.
Clinical Supervision: Essentials of Reflective Supervision - Supervision plays an important role to the supervisee in becoming a trained and competent practitioner. To be successful, it takes a great deal of flexibility and a clear understanding about how to guide the supervisee through this process. In this course, you will be provided with an overview of reflective supervision, as well as guidance about how to promote reflective practice in supervision.
