Diploma in Supervision with Soul:
Part I – Certificate
“A Soulful relationship is at the heart of supervision”
Six weekends from November 2023 to May 2024
Please note, this course is now full. We will update with the next dates when we have them.
This part-time training takes place in two sections. The first part comprises the six weekends outlined below. There are no written assignments apart from a reflective self-evaluation of a piece of live supervision undertaken as an online recording in small self organised groups. Participants are strongly recommended to undertake peer practicums on-line in between weekends.
The weekends will take place at an accessible central London venue.
The second part consists of 40 hours of supervision practice supervised by a Re-Vision supervisor with the rate of 1 hour of supervision to 5 hours of practice, the writing of a case study and completion of a final self assessment, accompanied by a satisfactory supervisor’s report. It may be commenced any time within three years of completing the certificate. For those already in practice, there will be a possibility of completing the diploma in tandem with the certificate.
Fees: Part 1. £1,500. Part 2 £850.
The principle aim of this training is to bring together the professional standards of good supervision with the depth and quality of a transpersonal perspective that honours the life of the soul.
1: From therapist to supervisor 4/5 November 2023 with Nicky Marshall and Deborah Berger
What do we look for in a supervisor? By looking at our assumptions and beliefs we can begin to build a picture of good supervision based on experience, and in relation to three classic roles for supervision, we clarify what nourishes or stunts the supervisory alliance
2: Soulful Supervision 2/3 December 2023 with Nicky Marshall and Jo-Ann Roden
From where in ourselves do we supervise? While so much theory is ego based, this module will help supervisors open to the mystery that operates through the relationship. Drawing on Jung’s idea of synchronicity to deepen the work of parallel process, we will explore the archetypal influences on the supervisory couple, and the integration of creative techniques to support the process. , examining both hopes and fears in each of us.
3: Maps and Models of supervision 13/14 January 2024 with Nicky Marshall and Jo-Ann Roden
We will explore the role of theory in helping the supervisor structure the complexity of attending to both client and supervisory relationships. Working with a variety of models, we address the supervisory task while remaining authentic and true to our own voice.
4: Field theory in supervision 24/25 February 2024 with Deborah Berger and Jo-Ann Roden
This module introduces a creative model for group supervision, which includes working with parallel process and field dynamics. This exciting approach frees up the supervisor to work with implicit group patterns which reflect on the therapist/client dyad.
5: The Challenges of Power and Difference 23/24 March 2024 with Deborah Berger and Jo-Ann Roden
We will explore power differentials across the supervisory roles to explicate implicit assumptions and see how power can be misused or insufficiently used. We will look at negative transference and the management of conflict to find the creative edge in supervision.
6: Ethics and Endings 11/12 May 2024 with Nicky Marshall and Deborah Berger
.This final module, which will also give time to ending the course and saying goodbye, will give attention to the sorts of ethical challenges that are often brought to supervision, and how these can be worked with creatively, holding the client in mind.
The training team bring together different theoretical orientations within a transpersonal and integrative framework. They draw on a rich experience of psychotherapy and supervision and offer a lively, experiential and well-informed approach to learning. Re-Vision uses an ‘inside-out’ method, encouraging students to integrate skills into their own reality rather than using them as a technical means to an end.
Why this training?
This training manages to be open and yet challenging. While recognising that supervision is a multi-layered process, requiring a high degree of reflexive awareness, it is not value-free. This training brings the supervision relationship to the foreground of supervision practice and demands the supervisor use themselves in a transparent and authentic manner.
The integrative approach enables us to supervise across a range of theoretical orientations, while allowing the individual’s own values to form the central pillar of their understanding.
