Effective Supervision: Focus on Transparency, Reflection and Staff Development

This 2 day training, created specifically for executive directors and staff in supervisory positions, will provide an overview of the Ingredients for Effective Supervisory Practice. Together, these approaches are trauma-informed and can be implemented by supervisors with their supervisees working in domestic violence programs.  Attendees will gain understanding of the three functions of supervision (education, support and administration) and strategies for accountability, transparency and staff growth and development. The training will highlight the benefits of incorporating these ingredients into our work to counter burn-out, compassion fatigue and secondary trauma.
