Foundations of Reflective Supervision and Leadership

Reflective supervision, reflective consultation, and reflective practice are terms used for the approaches now considered best practices for providers, supervisors, leadership, and agencies where workplace stress, high turnover, and service quality are significant concerns.

This foundational virtual training provides two half-days and 7 hours of highly interactive, experiential learning for supervisors and leaders in health and human services, including mental health, early childhood education, home visitation, and more.

Utilizing video, journaling, breakout activities, and real-time demonstrations, participants will develop a comprehensive framework for understanding and employing trauma-informed, equity-centered, resilience-focused reflective supervision for every aspect of one’s job, including brave space creation, mindful self-regulation, critical self-reflection, use of reflective questions to promote provider reflective capacity, and virtual facilitation engagement strategies for supervising and leading a remote workforce.

This foundational training is aimed at supervisors and leaders in health and human services, including mental health, early childhood education, home visitation, and more.

This training is for supervisors and leaders.

Diane, you are so amazing at what you do. Such a wonderful teacher and illustrator. I learned so much without being bombarded by content. I am grateful for the opportunity!

Los Angeles, CA

It was clear and easy to comprehend yet truly impactful! I generally have a hard time processing information and it won’t “stick” in my brain (I need to review material multiple times and let it materialize). I appreciate the intentionality, flow, pace, and digestable yet impactful content! I internalized and remembered most of the information and concepts Diane shared with us without having to go back to the material. I hope to participate in more trainings with Diane in the future.

I really appreciate how engaging it was for everyone, how Diane modeled the practice throughout, and how she was able to communicate so much without it being didactic. The whole team really appreciated her skills and approach. Looking forward to diving in further.
