Yorkshire Supervisors' Forum

26th September 2020 10am-1pm via Zoom: Supervising during a pandemic: what we are learning. Presented and facilitated by Amy Mills

Through a mixture of small and large group discussion we will explore a number of topics pertinent to our role as clinical supervisors during the pandemic, including:

• Self-care: how we take care of ourselves and our supervisees
• The effect of using technology to communicate on dynamics within the supervision space
• Returning to face-to-face meetings (or not) and the impact on the supervisory relationship
• Longer-term changes we might make to our supervisory practice

The aim of this workshop is to offer an opportunity for discussion and reflection on our collective experiences over the past few months. It’s hoped that this will allow us as a group to become better aware of what we find helpful and perhaps what we could tweak in our roles as supervisors, as we navigate and adapt to the “new normal”.

Amy is a Yorkshire Supervisors’ Forum committee member and a humanistic integrative counsellor and psychotherapist specialising in working with children and young people. She also supervises other therapists working with both children and adults in a variety of settings. Amy currently works in private practice in Hull, East Yorkshire. She has a background working within schools, universities and voluntary sector services.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, this workshop will be held online via Zoom (https://zoom.us/). The joining instructions will be sent by email to all participants the day before the event.

2021 Date TBC: Creative Supervision presented by Alison Gilmour

Creative Supervision uses a variety of arts based or action methods and techniques to explore client material, therapeutic relationships and interventions from a different perspective. It can be a powerful way of connecting with client material, understanding the relationship dynamics 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 models; 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 a 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.

Please note that this workshop has been postponed until we are able to meet face-to-face again. We will be hosting an event on 26th September 2020 online via Zoom software. Details of the topic will be released shortly.
