Reflective Supervision Skills: Senior Leaders Programme

Effective supervision and reflective practice are key contributors to mentally healthy organisations. This course gives senior leaders and managers the opportunity to learn from clinical professionals about a range of approaches that support wellbeing, learning and flexible thinking. These skills will help them enhance the conversations they have with staff and lead to improved staff and client wellbeing. It is based on recent research on the development of supervision models. Ongoing support is an integral part of the programme, and so we provide delegates with six-weekly group supervision following the training to explore and reflect on the resources and how to embed learning into practice across their organisation.

The course explores how evidence-based interventions can facilitate reflective practice. It explores different models, key principles that underpin reflective practice as well as the key skills that are needed to facilitate reflective supervision The skills learned will help staff to gain awareness of self and others to improve decision-making, develop informed practice, and promote an organisational culture that fosters and maintains positive mental health.

How will reflective supervision benefit your team?

Working with people to promote mental health can be demanding and complex. Reflective Supervision provides a regular, professional relationship with clear boundaries within which staff can reflect on their thoughts and feelings; drawing on this awareness to better support those they work with. It encourages healthy reflective practice, good decision-making, self-care, increased resilience, share knowledge and promote effective signposting. It can be of benefit to all, and especially those in senior or pastoral roles. Reflective supervision is not clinical supervision, line management or counselling for staff.

This course is suitable for managers and senior leaders who oversee staff. Ongoing support is an integral part of the programme. We provide delegates with group supervision every 6 weeks following the course to explore and reflect on the resources and to help embed learning into practice across their organisation.
