Telling the Truth in Supervision

 

Supervisor CPD

 

Staying with the lens of uncertainty in supervision and exploring the different facets of truth.

 

Not telling the truth - or the whole truth - in supervision can be a knowing choice on the part of a supervisee to avoid a predicted response from the supervisor. It can also be an unconscious choice, attributable to a 'blind spot'.

We'll explore circumstances in which both conscious and unconscious processes might be at work and use our own case studies to reflect on ways to successfully manage both.

Facilitated by Dr Alison Strasser
