The recent explosion of knowledge emerging from brain science has clearly demonstrated that meaningful learning requires integration of multiple domains of functioning. Meaningful, long-lasting learning requires engagement of body, mind and emotion. Although mental health professionals have begun to embrace holistic and integrative methods for practice, use of experiential methods in supervision has been slower to develop. This workshop will demonstrate how experiential methods can be used to enhance individual and group supervision. Participants will have the opportunity to practice and evaluate experiential techniques for supervision in small groups.
Course objectives include:
- Increase awareness of the basic brain functions that impact the supervisory relationship
- Learn skills that support supervisees to begin to articulate the affective, cognitive and body based experience of the helping relationship
- Practice skills for supporting supervisees to accurately label difficult to quantify experiences in their work with individuals, families and groups
Please note: Each class will be held via Zoom. Participant numbers will be capped to ensure a personalized learning experience and there will be numerous opportunities for engagement (e.g. small group discussions, role plays, case studies). As such, learners should prepare for active participation. We ask that students keep their cameras on as much as they are able, while understanding that it may not be possible to keep cameras on throughout the entire class. Rest assured that we will take many breaks throughout each class to help assuage Zoom fatigue.
