The Child, Youth and Family Practice Group (CYFPG) will be holding quarterly group supervision sessions for social workers. Each quarter will focus on a particular area of practice. The purpose is to support social workers come together, reflect on practice, share practice experience and connect with their social work identity.

Please join two experienced social workers, David Stracey and Toni Cash for an online facilitated reflective conversation.

Reflective Questions:

  • What assumptions do you hold about this situation/issue?
  • What have you got in your toolkit (practice framework) that helps with this work? What else do you need to obtain in your toolkit? How do you get this?
  • What is the role of social workers in supporting people in this working context?
  • What role does power have in this – how are you practising or do you wish to practice in a way that is anti oppressive?
  • How are your supervision/support structures working for you?
