Group supervision is cost effective, time effective, and makes the most of the expertise of all supervisees involved. In group supervision, there are increased opportunities for vicarious learning, exposure to a broader range of client populations and social work practice settings, increased opportunities for feedback, and an opportunity for modeling interventions and group work processes and skills. Groups are a natural container for role-play, reflective practice, parallel process, and activities directly applicable to practice. In this workshop, participants will identify the fundamentals of group work and supervision, describe specific models, approaches, and structures for group supervision, and discuss the benefits and limitations of group supervision.
This workshop will be relevant for supervisors who work with staff teams within agencies and supervisors who provide off-site clinical supervision. It will focus on practical application and include didactic instruction, small and large group discussion, demonstrations, and opportunities for experiential learning and direct skill development.
Workshop participants will:
- Review the core skill sets for supervision: individual, group, and staff group, across a variety of social work settings
- Review the core skill sets for group work
- Consider the benefits and limitations of group supervision
- Learn models and structures for supervision groups
- Learn and practice approaches and activities for conducting group supervision
This course will be held via Zoom and participant numbers will be capped to ensure a personalized learning experience.
