The seven-eyed model of supervision
Trainer: Joe Wilmot
The seven-eyed model of supervision was developed by Robin Shohet and Peter Hawkins. Their seminal book ‘Supervision in the Helping Professions’ is now in its 4th edition and has become an indispensable guide in many fields of practice. The seven-eyed model (seven modes) brings fresh insight to our supervision by helping us to explore the complex interplay of elements at work. By giving each mode time and space, we allow ourselves to experiment with different perspectives and ways of understanding.
During this session we will learn about how the seven modes deepen our understanding of work by exploring the relationships between our practice, ourselves as practitioners, the supervisor/supervisee and the wider contexts in which we work. The seven-eyed model was originally designed for client work - we will also see how it can be applied to other areas of our practice, since we are in relationship with different things and in different ways.
The day will include:
- maps and models of the supervision process
- experiential training in using the seven modes of supervision
- opportunities to work in triads, as the supervisor, supervisee and observer
- an exploration of contracting for different types of supervision and managing supervision boundaries
- exploring different skills needed for individual and group supervision.
This workshop will be suitable for those new to supervision through to experienced practitioners wanting to deepen their understanding and use of the model.
NB: There will be a maximum of 20 participants for this workshop.
