Making the Most of Reflective Supervision: An Introduction to Reflective Practice

Reflective supervision, reflective consultation, and reflective practice are terms used for the emerging approach now considered best practice for agencies where stress, high turnover, and service quality are significant issues. This one-day immersive, experiential workshop is designed for both supervisors and supervisees working as infant mental health and early childhood specialists, early childhood educators, home visitors, and other providers of infant-early childhood services. Utilizing video, role play, and small group exercises, participants will develop a comprehensive framework for understanding reflective supervision and implementing reflective practice strategies in multidisciplinary settings serving at-risk families and children. This training satisfies 7 hours towards the California Center IFECMH (Infant Family Early Childhood Mental Health) Endorsement.
