Using Creative Supervision in Practice

An Experiential Learning Experience of the use of Creative Techniques in Supervision

This day will offer participants a brief introduction to theoretical perspective on the use of creative methods in clinical supervision practice.  Supervisors attending this training will then participate experientially in learning or extending their learning on the use of a number of creative techniques for use in supervision.  The day will provide opportunity to work in small groups on each technique, discuss the experiences of this in the smaller group and engage in collegiate discussion in the larger forum.  The day is an introduction and skill building session that will introduce clinical supervisors with a range of techniques for use in practice.  Participants will develop skills which can be used to explore clinical presentations more deeply, address issues of counter-transference, parallel process and therapist’ use of self, and reflection on therapy practice and on the structuring of practice, and aids to clinical decision-making .  There will be lots of play and experiential learning built into the day.  It is a practical and thought provoking introduction to the use of creativity in the field of clinical supervision.

There will be a presentation on creative modalities and experientials on use of art, sculpting, dramatizing, sand tray and working with the body.
