Reflective Group Supervision

Topic: Complexity in the Workplace - facilitated by Amanda O'Brien

This session will provide an opportunity to reflect on the impact of broader macro and policy issues that impact our day-to-day practice whereby resulting restrictions and pressures associated with our workplaces can create moral distress, or dissonance between Social Work ethics and values and meeting the needs of the service users we work with. Participants are invited to share experiences as we reflect on what social work can do to overcome these challenges.

Discussion will be supported by the following reflective questions:

  • What assumptions do I hold about this situation/issue – which takes us to our value stances?
  • What have you got in your toolkit (practice framework) that helps you deal with this? What else do you need in your toolkit and 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 am I practising or do I wish to practice in a way that is anti oppressive?
  • How are your supervision/support structures working for you?

  • Promote and advocate for the unique contribution social work can bring to child, youth, and family work.
  • Advocate for the professionalisation and recognition of social work within child, youth, and family practice.
  • Prioritise, develop, and advocate for strategies and social policy responses, to inform child, youth, and family practice.
  • Provide a forum for social workers working in child, youth, and family contexts in which contemporary professional issues can be discussed and reflected on.
  • Support social workers in exploring, sharing, reflecting on, and influencing research in the child, youth, and family work speciality area
  • Support social work professional development through sharing and promoting relevant professional development opportunities in the child, youth, and family context (including national and international conferences)
