This workshop encourages supervisors to examine their practice of supervision. Specifically, the aim is to raise your awareness of your own practice with supervisees through understanding your priorities and decision-making during supervision. You will utilise both Hawkins & Shohet’s ‘Seven-Eyed Supervision: A Process Model’ and Heron’s ‘Six Categories of Intervention’, within a matrix to help you identify your current approach to supervision. This matrix allows both recognition of your patterns of intervention used and potential areas of growth as a supervisor. This workshop also provides a space for you to appraise your engagement and relationship to your supervisees and to further tailor your interventions with consideration of your supervisees abilities and level of confidence as a practitioner. By applying these models and processes you will have the opportunity to enhance your awareness of your supervisory practice and target the most suitable interventions for your supervisees aiding their development and awareness as a practitioner.
