Each group supervision one group member will present a case, showing a short video clip of a couple. We will have a second presenter if time allows. First, I’ll ask the presenter sharing a case, what they hope to gain or need from the group during the supervision session. The presenter will share pertinent background information about the couple, where they feel stuck or would like feedback, and a short clip of the couple if possible. This will be followed by a group discussion. The group intention is to support the presenter. The tone of group sessions is supportive, encouraging, and nonjudgmental. It can be scary and feel very vulnerable to share our work with our peers. My intention is to make the group as safe as possible, providing a positive experience for the presenter.
EQUANIMITY AND INCLUSION IN GROUP SUPERVISION
As a white, cisgender, heterosexual women I recognize I have unearned/unfair privilege. I want to create a welcoming group for all that values and welcomes differences among us. I want to uphold my values of equity and inclusivity. I will note micro aggressions when I observe them. I invite group members to make me aware of micro aggressions, if they choose and feel comfortable, I or others may display with the intention of making the group a safe place for all to learn, grow, take risks, and be vulnerable.
