Supervision is an essential part of any caregiver’s practice.
Self care is vital for those who are caring for others, and supervision allows caregivers time for reflection and feedback and to ensure they are coping well with the demands of caring. However, many of us working in more ‘informal’ member care roles have not considered supervision as an essential element of our practice.
This webinar, brought to you by the Member Care Forum, aims to outline what supervision is and why you need it, and to equip you to make the best use of supervision to support your clients whilst taking care of yourself. The aims of the session are to:
- Outline the nature and benefits of supervision
- Give an overview of the ‘seven-eyed’ model of supervision
- Enable you to enhance your effectiveness as a care provider
- Consider some of the key aspects of supervision in terms of theory, skills and practice
- Reflect on the relevance of supervision in your organisational context
- Create space for you to develop your own plan to get the most out of the supervisory relationship
This interactive training will use a mix of presentation material, small group interaction, case studies and personal reflection.
The webinar will take place in two parts: 10:00am – 12:00pm and then 12:45pm-2:45pm.
- The event starts at 10.00am, but please start 'arriving' from 9:45am so we can admit everyone in time for a prompt 10:00am start.
- Invitations and the password for the webinar will be sent out by 5pm on Monday 14th September - please check your emails.
- Delegates from outside the UK are also welcome to join us if 10.00am–2:45pm BST works for you!
