This has long been recognised in CBT, where the use of behavioural experiments is considered important, if not essential, in ensuring learning at both a ‘heart’ and ‘head’ level. These principles of learning apply as much in clinical supervision as they do in therapy, and yet experiential methods are used infrequently in supervision, case discussion seems to be the dominant method.
This workshop is suitable for both new
and seasoned supervisors who wish to make their supervision more experiential. It will help participants increase the frequency and quality of the use of experiential methods in their own supervision, as well as providing a chance to reflect on personal barriers to their use. The workshop will look at the range of experiential methods available and the compelling rationale for their use, before going on to identify some possible reasons why they are often underused. Three main approaches to making supervision more experiential will be advocated: 1. Contracting at the start of supervision2. Agenda setting in each session 3. Spontaneous use of active methods within sessionsThis will be through extensive use of demonstrations from the workshop leaders, small group practice, and discussion as a large group. Active participation is expected from all workshop participants.
Objectives1. To identify and discuss the benefits of using experiential methods in supervision2. To practice using experiential methods to enhance learning in supervision
