Free webinar: Essentials of Supervision: Part 4

Bob Thomson leads this series of four one-hour webinars, setting out the basics of supervision for coaches who have little or no experience of using supervision as part of their practice. This is webinar 4: The practicalities of finding and working with a supervisor.

About the series

The webinar series is facilitated by Professor Bob Thomson of Warwick Business School. Please note that the series is about receiving supervision, rather than being a training programme for supervisors. 

Each webinar contains ideas and models explained via PowerPoint slides, questions and exercises to invite participants to reflect upon ideas and upon their practice, and an interview with a coach who has had little experience of supervision.

Here are all the webinars in the series:

Webinar 1: What is supervision?
Webinar 2: Reflecting on practice
Webinar 3: The relationship between coach and supervisor
Webinar 4: The practicalities of finding and working with a supervisor

Webinar 4: The practicalities of finding and working with a supervisor

The previous webinars in the series have viewed supervision as a one-to-one relationship. This fourth webinar goes on to consider the pros and cons of group supervision. It discusses peer supervision or co-supervision, which may be a practical and inexpensive option for someone who is building their coaching practice.

It also explores finding and selecting a supervisor, and how to prepare effectively for a supervision session. Practical exercises enable participants to translate ideas into their own context.

The webinar includes some case studies to invite participants to explore ethical issues which might arise, such as confidentiality, boundaries and self care, and concludes with an online interview with a coach who has limited experience of supervision.
