7 & 8 May 2015, with Shona Russell
Hosted by The Narrative Therapy Centre, Crows Nest, NSW
Exploring narrative approaches to supervision – thinking together in relationship in ways that re-invigorate professional identity.
Shona Russell has been exploring narrative practices in her work as a supervisor for many years both as an external consultant to organizations and with practitioners who have a specific interest in narrative therapy.
This workshop will benefit supervisee’s who wonder how supervision can be useful to their work and supervisors who want to support to those who consult them. Certificates will be provided on completion.
The following specific themes and practices will be explored:
What is supervision?
Negotiating supervision – how can a context of negotiation about what supervision is be created and a context where practitioners think together in relationship be formed?
What to focus on in supervision
The position we take as supervisors
Stories workers have of themselves and practices that re- invigorate professional identity
Re-storying professional identity through keeping faith with what is given value
The role of externalizing conversations in interrupting internalized accounts of professional identity
The rites of passage metaphor as it relates to professional
Alternative proposals for responding to worker distress, fatigue and exhaustion – pain as testimony – distress as tribute
Creating audiences for re- storying professional identity
Documents of identity – scaffolding skills and knowledges
