This workshop will introduce the use of technology in supervisory services in the Digital Age.
Working online via the Internet with clients and supervisees has traditionally been met with
suspicion by the mental health profession, yet has been shown to be economic, convenient
and effective. By working online, we can reach more people at their own convenience; being in
their own environment is one of the best ways to foster a sound and relaxed therapeutic or
This workshop will focus on use of technology in supervision. Theory, Ethics and Practical
skills will also be discussed and examined – please bring your burning questions!
This will be followed by our AGM and all are welcome to attend and contribute to input on our programs.
York June 13th 2020 Paul Goode "Working with Trauma and Supervision"
The medical profession, when they use the word trauma, is often referring to a physical injury. The general public, and the mental health profession to some extent, tend to think only of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and ex-military personnel. In this workshop, facilitated by fellow YSF member Paul Goode, we will explore briefly the extremely broad field of trauma, its causes and its consequences. The main neurobiological mechanisms that are involved will be discussed illustrated by using a particular conceptual model of the brain and memory. The fascinating, although potentially scary, concept of dissociation will also be explored.
We will then consider the implications for supervision, irrespective of whether you or your supervisees specialise in trauma or not.
The workshop will use a variety of learning styles including small group discussion, formal teaching and videos. In spite of the subject every effort will be made to use some humour in order to keep it as ‘light’ as possible! You will also not be required to divulge any of your own trauma material, if you have any.
Paul is a BACP Accredited psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer. He is also an EMDR Europe Accredited Consultant and Supervisor. With a background in primary care mental health/IAPT in the NHS he has specialised in trauma for over 10 years. He has worked with clients who have experienced a wide range of trauma especially in childhood from either abuse and/or poor attachment. Paul has presented trainings on the subject to students on counselling courses, voluntary agencies and other colleagues.
25th of Sept 2020 workshop will be presented by Alison Gilmour titled Creative Supervision
Creative Supervision uses a variety of arts based or action methods and techniques to ex-plore client material, therapeutic relationships and interventions from a different perspective. It can be a powerful way of connecting with client material, understanding the relationship dy-namics at play within the therapeutic work, the system or organisation and reinvigorating therapeutic practice.
This workshop introduces the concept of working with a combination of two supervision mod-els; Creative Supervision (Anna Chesner, Mooli Lahad ) and the 7 eyed model. (Hawkins and Shohet)
It will briefly explore how the 7 eyed model can be used as a map and framework to contain and support creative techniques within supervision using a blend of theory and experiential practical work in pairs or small groups.
This workshop will be of interest to anyone who supervises counsellors, psychotherapists and Arts Therapists.
Alison is Dramatherapist, Psychotherapist and Supervisor with many years of experience in providing supervision and offering individual and group therapy to a wide range of adults and young people. She has worked within the NHS, private practice and the voluntary sector.
Alison lives in Harrogate, is a long standing member of the Yorkshire Supervisors Forum and has a passion for bringing creativity into the counselling room, supervision space and life in general.
