Clinical Supervision

CLINICAL SUPERVISION

Family Focused Supervision and Guided Reflective Practice

A place to share our stories and collective wisdom, connect with our own inner resources and challenges, practice new skills, challenge and refine our frameworks.

 

SUPERVISION FOR YOUTH WORKERS AND PROFESSIONALS WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE

Young people accessing our services are unique and precious individuals, often coming from disadvantaged environments, holding complex stories of trauma, injustice, and distress.

To effectively serve their needs, we need to take care of ourselves, and approach each problem with compassion, shared purpose, agility of mind, and with a keen eye on mobilising and activating wider systems of love and care.

Horace’s supervision is focused on marshalling individual and team strengths, with a systemic, narrative and integrative orientation. His special interests are Youth Alcohol and other Drug issues, Family Inclusive Practice, Care Planning, and building social and ecological Resilience.

 

WHEN IS A GOOD TIME TO GET SOME EXTERNAL SUPERVISION?

  • When things are going well; review, amplify strengths, enhance future capabilities 
  • When you need ‘a new set of eyes’; feeling stuck or at an impasse with an issue
  •  Untangling tensions, dilemmas, and ethical issues in the ‘grey areas’
  •  At times of transition; staff changes, program establishment, responding to new issues and emerging populations
  •  When an external supervisor could compliment your line management and operational supervision.
