Reflexive Supervision: a workbook for learning within and across professions
I’m delighted, and relieved, to be able to say that, Reflexive Supervision: a workbook for learning within and across professions, is now available through Amazon.
My hope is that it will be of use to supervisors and supervisees in a wide range of professions where you find yourself helping people manage emotional experiences. As a supervisor you might also recommend it to your supervisees and use it together as a workbook to enhance the learning relationship.
As practitioners experience increasingly intense emptions in their work reflexive supervision conversations can turn emotion into insight while reducing anxiety by:
Deepening our capacity to accurately resonate with the emotions of others: through enhanced emotional intelligence.
Broadening our theoretical understanding: through accessing the established and emerging wisdom of our own and other professions.
Developing our practical skills: through designing more accurate interventions of greater use to those we work with.
Reducing the risk of burnout: through processing the impact of other's emotions on us.
Decreasing the risk that we simply impose our own emotional struggles and dilemmas on those we work with: through greater self-awareness and personal responsibility.
Limiting the potential for silo-type thinking: through re-connecting to our own source while co-creating rich conversations across professions.
