Centering Ethics in Group Supervision by Vikki Reynolds

Centering Ethics in Group Supervision: Creating a Culture and Structuring Safety: A Supervision of Solidarity

For those who are providing supervision to counsellors or community service workers or for those with limited experience in the counselling supervision field and seeking an increased understanding of group supervision practices.

This experiential certificate course is offered through CityU Canada’s continuing education programs and will help participants:

  •  consider how to promote dignifying and generative supervision groups for therapy and community work
  •  deconstruct “case consultation” norms that don’t serve clients or practitioners, and consider what a “Culture of Critique” that is generative, expansive, connected and dignified might offer.
  •  consider practices of structuring safety and creating relationships of respect and dignity which can promote a culture of accountability that generates useful and rich critique.
  •  share some exercises for creating intentional supervisory relationships.
  •  create cultures of accountability that invite critique that are a resistance against surveillance practices of supervision
  •  practice examples of “Living Supervision”, and creating “Solidarity Teams” to assist practitioners to work in alignment with our collective ethics
