How My Supervision Impacts Upon My Practice
I use supervision to monitor and manage practical aspects of my client work, such as ensuring an appropriate case load with adequate time (currently three hours a month) allocated for supervision.
In my original submission for reinstatement of my accreditation, I included (and still include) an article that illustrates how I link my way of being with clients to client-centered theory – and this is a very important aspect of supervision for me. (Incidentally, I consider my knowledge of client-centered theory to be extremely in depth, and I experienced previous supervisors as less knowledgeable. This is one reason why I really appreciate
being in a group with Alison, as her knowledge is profound, too.)
Our theme this year - Finding inner strength, connection and opportunity in times of crisis is particularly apt given the challenges all of us are facing. We’re adapting to the Corona-challenge by moving this year’s conference to an e-format via Zoom. We are compressing our agenda into three days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 7 - August 9, making it easier to fit into people’s schedules.
These meetings take place weekly on Friday's from 12 noon to 3PM, Pacific Daylight Time. We generally have around 14 people attending from around the US and the world. The purpose is to allow attendees to feel Community and Support as we Encounter with one another. The meeting is open to all CSP members, as well as to others who the members may recommend. An online Zoom meeting.
Antonio Santos is hosting a weekly PCA International Zoom meeting, which is held on alternating Saturday and Sunday mornings at 6AM Pacific Daylight Time. This start time accommodates the needs of attendees who are spread across the globe. The meeting runs for two hours, and is well attended by members of the International PCA Community - CSP and others.
