|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 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.
|Outcome||At the completion of this workshop, participants will have:|
• Explored some assumptions underpinning a capacity building approach to supervision conversations about practice
• Explored some conversational maps to assist in these conversations
• Explored how these ideas can be applied to their own work context.
