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

Cost: $330.00
