Closely working with infants and families invariably evokes emotions, memories, and questions for IMH professionals. How do these professionals cope with the difficult situations they see infants and families going through?
The answer is support — in the form of Reflective Supervision.
Reflective Supervision is the process of providing regular, individual clinical supervision for infant mental health professionals. It provides an opportunity for professionals to discuss the burdens of their cases with a knowledgeable, caring person.
With these DVDs, you will experience Reflective Supervision alongside infant mental health mentors Douglas Davies, Julie Ribaudo, Deborah Weatherston and William Schafer, and infant mental health practitioners Vicky Novell, Katie Bresky, Carla Barron and Stefanie Hill as they present 4 spontaneous unrehearsed reflective supervision sessions. Each 30-minute session provides a unique window into reflective supervision experiences and offers opportunities to consider essential elements of reflective process. Includes a brief training guide and questions.
Representing the cutting edge of best practice approaches, this training package is ideally suited for supervisors and trainers who are introducing reflective supervision to practitioners in a variety of relationship-based programs, e.g., IMH home visiting services, parent-infant therapeutic services, hospital-based treatment programs for parents and infants.
