In our session will discuss and share our experience in researching peer supervision practice across the global and give you an opportunity to contribute to this ongoing research. We will ask some challenging questions and provide a platform for debate. For example, Where do you place peer supervision in your range of reflective practice? We will explore how different international contexts generate different perspectives and approaches to supervision. We propose that it is possible to create a symbiotic relationship between peer supervision and supervision with a qualified supervisor The key is to enable peers to work together robustly and clarify when peer supervision is or is not sufficient. Working in small groups we will debate these questions:
– When & where is peer supervision a positive choice?
– What are the limits of peer supervision?
– How do you balance ease of access to supervision with keeping the safety of the client in mind?
