Workshop Venue:

Lighthouse Resources Upstairs Training Room

Kyabra Street RUNCORN, QLD. 4113

Target Group:

For counsellors, social/human service workers, pastoral care workers, psychologists, youth workers, students or anyone who is a supervisor or a supervisee and interested in practice development.

Prerequisite/Notes:

Some understanding of post structuralist practice frameworks such as Client/Person Centred, Strengths Based, Narrative and Solution Focused approaches would be an advantage for participation.

Workshop Outline:

Do you ever find yourself in your role as a supervisor wondering how you can support supervisees to build on their own skills and knowledge? Do you get invited into coming up with all the answers and feel you are doing all the work? Or as a supervisee do you ever feel that the advice offered by your supervisor doesn’t feel quite right? In your role as supervisor or supervisee do you aspire to having conversations that enable you to reflect and make decisions about your own practice?

This two day workshop will offer workers, whether they are supervisors, supervisees or both an opportunity to explore ways of having conversations that centre the knowledge and expertise of the supervisee. In doing so the supervisee has the opportunity to build on what they know and the supervisor has a tool to make this possible.

Workshop Outcome:

At the completion of this workshop, participants will have:

  • explored some of the basic assumptions underpinning a capacity building approach to supervision conversations about practice
  • explored a basic conversational map to assist in these conversations
  • explored how these ideas can be applied to their own work context.

Facilitator Bio:

Kath Reid trained as a social worker. She has been intrigued by narrative ideas for a number of years. She has completed the Graduate Diploma of Narrative Therapy offer by the Dulwich Centre and more recently undertaken family therapy studies. Over the last 14 year’s Kath has worked for both government and non-government organisations. Some of Kath’s therapeutic practice has seen her working with children and young people who have significant trauma and abuse, women reclaiming their lives from domestic violence, families who have experienced state intervention, young women who have experienced sexual violence and women living with the effects of eating issues. She brings a commitment to contextualize the problems that people face. Kath has enjoyed the challenge of finding creative and collaborative ways of working with children, young people, adults and groups to make more visible their skills and knowledge in the face of some significant problems. Kath has also enjoyed co-creating spaces of learning, to share strengths-based and narrative ideas in experiential ways.
