Supervision Special Interest Group Launch Event - 30th January 2024

We’re excited to announce our first EMCC UK Supervision SIG event taking place 13.00-15.00 on 30 January 2024, with special guest speakers Robin  & Joan Shohet. They will look at how fear can creep into the supervisory relationship and by attending to it with compassion and love supervisors and supervisees can find their relationship strengthened.  The second half of the event will allow time for networking and reflection.

Joan Shohet has been supervising sine 1972 and is co-founder of the Centre for Supervision and Team Development. She now works as a trainer, supervisor, Psychotherapist and mediator.
