Event Description

“A family, organization, or system of care cannot be expected to operate relationally without attending to the ‘reflective health’ of relationships at all levels of that system.” — Diane Reynolds, LMFT

Reflective supervision, reflective consultation, and reflective practice are considered best practices for providers, supervisors, and agencies where stress, secondary trauma, high turnover, and service quality are significant concerns. This interactive, highly experiential virtual training is designed for supervisors in the infant-family each childhood field, including mental health, early childhood education, home visitation, and other child and family services. Utilizing partner and small group exercises, participants will develop a comprehensive framework for understanding and employing reflective supervision for every aspect of one’s job, including brave space creation, mindful self-regulation, use of reflective questions to unleash wisdom and promote provider reflective capacity, as well as virtual facilitation engagement strategies for supervising a remote workforce.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define reflective supervision
  • Identify three distinct responsibilities of supervisee and supervisor
  • Define reflective functioning and its importance to relationship security
  • Name three ways multiple personal and social identities impact how one inhabits divergent supervisory roles
  • Describe 3-4 virtual facilitation strategies for hard to engage staff
  • Demonstrate the use of 3-4 specific, intentional reflective questions to deepen staff reflective capacity in 1:1 and group reflective supervision
