This new course addresses the complexity of the supervision processes. It integrates systemic and developmental approaches to supervision. It addresses subconscious and relational processes, identity and cultural influences, ethical practice and skills.
The course employs Carr’s systemic methods of assessment and makes use of systemic approaches to counselling and supervision work. Hawkins & shohet’s 7-eyed model of supervision provides a strong supervisory framework.
The developmental approach of the course recognises the importance of understanding the competence journey of both counsellor and supervisor. Understanding subconscious processes are an essential element of the course, which promotes growth in self-awareness, understanding of the power dynamics in both counselling and supervision relationships.
Creativity, curiosity and fun are important in the promotion of learning and development and the course incorporates these in the exploration of group dynamics, and group supervision.
Supervisors are the guardians of ethical practice, and ethical considerations permeates and underpins this course.
For those planning to progress to Master level study the course also includes an introduction to research methods and techniques.
