Interactional Supervision - Part 2

This session will focus on enhancing critical reflection in supervision, including working to ensure that there is space and context for learning. This often means that a shift needs to take place in the role from expert to facilitator. New supervisors may have ambivalence about the power and authority inherent in the role, particularly when it is necessary to have difficult conversations in the supervision forum.

This AASW NSW Connect:ED webinar is part of a series helping Social Workers to connect with new ideas and reflect on their own practice. We focus on bringing everyday social workers to talk about their practice, ideas and experiences of social work. Webinars are 30 minutes (including short Q&A) and where agreed with the presenter, will be recorded for those who cannot participate in real time.

Registrations are open to everyone nationally.
