2nd Oct 2021 Creative Supervision with Alison Gilmour

What an interesting and thought provoking day we had with Alison, who raised many good topics of conversation for the small group discussions, both in the venue and online with our new presentation format.
A feedback from one of the group who attended summed it up nicely.
"Thank you so much to Alison for this stimulating workshop, which will stay with me and has already made me see some of my work differently, and made me reflect on how supervision can come to life. I could hear enough to make the lecturing parts helpful. Breakout room was a great experience – I think Zoom works really well with pair/group practical work. I think individual creative ‘exercises’ would also work well in this blended format. I hope this feedback is helpful for the blended format, which was so good for me as I couldn't have travelled (petrol!) and would have missed it"

26th June 2021 There's a hole in my bucket!' Exploring wider themes around loss.

Amelie and Ian presented this interesting topic which was well received by the group and stimulated lots of conversation.

In the unprecedented events of the last few months, we have all felt the presence of loss in one form or another, both personally and professionally as therapists and supervisors. We will explore wider themes around loss, the effects of loss on us and how we might support ourselves and our supervisees when we experience it.

Feb Supervising Somatic Therapy Online" – benefits, challenges, and reflection.

This interesting and thought provoking event, facilitated by Justyna Muller, allowed us space to discuss and reflect on how we use somatic awareness while working on screens or by phone and when the visibility of client’s or supervisee’s body is limited to within the screen or is invisible. Is the somatic resonance still happening? And if so, can we work with this?

Sept 2020 Supervising during a pandemic: what we are learning

The workshop provided immensely interesting and thought provoking discussions for all that attended. The richness of the conversations in the small groups was really powerful and made all of us think about the wider aspects of not only offering supervision but also around how we manage our support and help to the people we work with. This once again shows how much experience and knowledge the group have and how we all benefit form the discussions we have. Thank you Amy for this very interesting CPD delivered as always in a very professional and interesting way.

June workshop with 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.

Paul is a BACP Accredited psychotherapist. 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 training on the subject to students on counselling courses, voluntary agencies and other colleagues.

Feb AGM Kate Anthony The use of technology in supervision in the Digital Age

Dr Kate Anthony is a well-respected expert in the use of technology in mental health services.
She is a Fellow of BACP, and CEO of the Online Therapy Institute – a training organisation
about and for the field of online therapy and counselling.
The workshop introduced us to 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.

Our October event in York was titled "Reflections on Supervision"

This workshop gave us space to share our experiences, insights and thoughts on this unique relationship.
The topics we explored was
 Supervision of supervision – when is enough enough?
 When does supervision become therapy?
 What dynamics are at play when supervising therapists who work for
organisations compared to those in private practice?
It was an open session and participants came with their own
suggestions for small group discussions.

It was facilitated by Jo Brackenbury and Amelie Lavan.

June 1st 2019 To be met as a person in supervision: exploring key ideas from the work of Una McCluskey

Facilitated by Christine Bailey
In this workshop Christine invited us to explore these questions using ideas from the work of Una McCluskey, Dorothy Heard and Brian Lake. Between them these practitioner academics went “beyond Bowlby” to discover the 7 instinctive biological attachment systems in adult life. Integrating this theory with her research on effective caregiving, Dr Una McCluskey created Exploratory Goal Corrected PsychotherapyTM(EGCP) as a way of exploring how these 7 systems work together to create a Restorative Process, which enables people to recover and maintain their wellbeing – whether clients, supervisees or supervisors.
