OverviewRecording a style of supervision which moves beyond a focus on task completion can be a challenge and for example, within Children’s Services, Ofsted inspections in a number of Local Authorities have commented that reflection and analysis are insufficiently evidenced within the supervision records. In-Trac believes that good recording is an important element of good practice as it provides the opportunity for the supervisee and supervisor to reflect on, summarise and agree the key elements of their discussions as well as providing a permanent record of the reasons underlining decisions which is available to others. We have been working with a number of organisations to create formats that support the recording of reflective supervision and have developed this one day workshop to develop the skills of supervisors in this task. The aim of the day is therefore to explore best practice in recording supervision with a focus on the effective recording of case discussions in the child’s records. It is an interactive participative day focusing on the practical skills involved. It is assumed that participants will have attended previous In-Trac training equipping them with the skills required to deliver reflective supervision
Who is Recording Reflective Supervision aimed at?Practitioners who supervise - Participants will have attended previous In-Trac training equipping them with the skills required to deliver reflective supervision
Course Length1 day
Participants will have had the opportunity to:-
- Understand the way in which supervision should be recorded including the interface between the supervisee’s supervision notes and supervision discussions on the child’s file.
- Practice recording a supervision discussion in relation to a child and their family which does justice to the reflective and analytical components of the process.
- Critically evaluate their own skills and work with others to establish what a good recording looks like.
