Supervision is a process of communication between two professionals regarding professional psychological activities in which a psychologist, psychotherapist discovers the complexities of interaction with the client begins to understand its limitations, which manifest themselves in his work, expands the vision of the situation.
Supervision gives the chance of emotional reaction, a theoretical and structural analysis of sessions or practices in General. With regular work with a stronger therapeutic supervisor position, there is professional growth, have the opportunity to get an outside look at their professional work. Work becomes more clear, clean, simple, sensible and professional.
Supervision sometimes group and individual, in person or in absentia, supervision of the event or practice in General. Each of these types of their tasks, their capabilities and limitations.
Individual or group supervision is the division from the point of view of the organizational format of the work.
Individual supervision, in my opinion, necessary. It provides an opportunity to discuss their own practice tete-a-tete with the supervisor. There is the possibility of discussing the complexities of customer interactions in a more close setting, respectively, may be affected more intimate, personal material. The meeting time is used supervisando only for themselves. The competition with colleagues does not arise, maybe except for the supervisor and therapist no one else. Since individual supervision is coordinated only with the supervisor, the time is chosen for her is quite flexible and can be assigned depending on the needs of the therapist. At the individual supervisee has its limitations: it limits the possibility of getting an extended look at the situation, because no one except the supervisor. Accordingly, narrowed emotional reflection of the situation, it is difficult to determine its place among professional colleagues, it is difficult to get recognition. Opportunities face-to-face servizii also limited (with the exception of the included supervision, when a supervisor is present at the session with the client).
Group supervision. This type of work allows you to see the situation related to the occupational activity, more extensively, the TC members are often involved in the process of supervision, providing feedback in the form of emotional response and participating in the theoretical analysis of the situation. In contrast to the individual format, group supervision provides an opportunity to see the work of other participants. You are getting experience by learning on different occasions, including not seen before in the practice of their own work. Have the opportunity to gain professional recognition (and rejection, though), professional support. Very well worked a professional sustainability practitioner. You can discuss the cases, work in a circle, in a collegial conversation. Because of the presence of other potential participants in person and, accordingly, face-to-face supervision.
In the group format there are difficulties with the appointment time. So often group supervision make a regular, agreeing in advance with all participants about the dates of the meetings.
Supervision of the event or practice involves considering the various aspects addressed in the session.
If we are talking about the case, as a rule, we are talking about the difficulties in working with one client or a particular complexity of the therapist, manifested in working with multiple clients. For example: difficulty in taking the customer's feelings or clash with their emotional reactions knocked out of the process.
Supervision of practice refers to the understanding of the philosophy, the methodology of work. It allows you to determine marketing initiatives or to answer questions relating to General fatigue or inefficiencies in attracting customers. Supervision practice helps greatly to look at yourself as a professional and to understand what prevents busy desired position in professional sphere.
full or part-time formats of supervision determine the form to be submitted to the supervision of the material. In person or in absentia is always possible to consider only the complexity of the work with the case.
As a rule, face-to-face supervision most often used in group format (or supervision of triples in the training process). Face-to-face supervision are mostly done directly after presenting the work of therapist and client affect the therapeutic position, the emotional state of the therapist, rassmatrivayut the strategy the tactics the therapist, help to make the hypothesis work. They are good because help to a lot of professional support to understand the specific difficulty that arises in the work here and now. Moreover, this format allows the request to focus the attention of the supervisor on how proyavlyaetsya the therapist's specific complexity in the work (for example, a supervisor can track the focus of attention of the therapist, bodily reactions, etc.). Further discussion obtained in the course of the session material can be examined through the refraction of the therapist's work in General, PM with other clients.
part-time supervision is the difficulty in working with the client exclusively according to the therapist, in his retelling. Thus, it looks less "objectively" spectacular. Taberet from the participants more focus on the story. But there are supervisors who choose this format when rasmotrenii case. And here's why: first of all, the supervision considers the complexity of the client, and the complexity of the therapist that appear in his story enough. The therapist in this case is reinforced to support themselves, their vision work. Avoided the temptation to "good cause" thereunto, describing his alleged strategy of working with the client as possible in face-to-face supervision. Position, which assumes that two people with its own characteristics could in this situation to build only such interaction, and no other, clearly coming to the fore, free from fantasies and allows the therapist to create strategies for working with the client.
a supervisor to choose?
If You have yet to learn or are at the stage of formation professionalnogo, it is best to go for supervision to the supervisor the same direction. This will allow you to better understand your approach to build a systematic way of thinking in the framework of the proposed approach philosophical and Metrology paradigm. Moreover, the conversation with the supervisor at the same professional level greatly facilitates understanding and helps to determine its place in the professional circle. Me
at the same likes and multimodal approaches in other areas, there are important ideas and views that extend vision. But in the beginning I would have been hard to establish themselves in the chosen method of work.
In any case, I believe that Supervisory support significantly enhances the quality of work, reduces the likelihood professionalnogo burnout, it helps prevent emotional overload of the therapist and, ultimately, serve the development of professional development and maintaining professionalism in the work.
