Rahera Taylor and Gail Allan, Maori Roopu Representatives, Supervision Committee

Plenary: Supervision and Te Tiriti - Invitations to getting to know us better

A presentation by the two Maori members on the national supervision committee of NZAC.  Named ‘Invitations to getting know us better’, Gail and Rahera bring to members a look in to their worlds.  They are hopeful that their light-hearted stories with serious messages will provoke questions with good intent and an ongoing curiosity about Matauranga Maori.  ‘Don’t clap, it’s not entertainment’ is a look at the solemn process of Powhiri.  ‘Granny’s Moko’ is a walk down memory lane and a reminder to these two women of how common Moko Kauae were, when they were young girls.  ‘Shhhhh, they’re watching us’ is a moving story of a kuia who left her papakainga and moved to suburbia. ‘Restoring the label of mixed heritage’.  To stand in the shadow of my French and Scottish whakapapa whilst standing in Te Ao Marama Maori.

Workshop Details:

- When Supervision is Working – Co-searching Our Own Experiences: Kathie Crocket, Waikato University

This workshop will develop ideas, thoughts and discussion with participants from a Narative Therapy perspective.

- “Thinking Like a Supervisor” Becoming a Supervisor: Janet May, Waikato Institute of Technology

Borders (1992) coined the phrase ‘learning to think like a supervisor’ to encapsulate the shift she felt was required for counsellors in becoming supervisors.  Borders advocated that ‘good counsellors’ do not automatically become ‘good supervisors ‘rather a cognitive shift is required in becoming a supervisor. This workshop is for counsellors considering becoming supervisors who wish to understand what is involved in the process of becoming a supervisor and/or for counsellors who are already supervising to explore further areas for development in their identity and role as supervisors. Current training and education available for supervisors in Aotearoa will be discussed and participants supported to consider possible next steps in their journey as a supervisor.   

- Seeking a Supervisor. Creating a Working Relationship – Contracting for Supervision:  Judy McCormack, Supervision Committee

The Supervision Committee has drafted a paper that gives guidelines for seeking a supervisor.  This workshop will discuss the draft which will be available at the workshop.  Please bring your ideas to contribute to this document.  The Supervision Committee has been asked to provide a template of a supervision contract.  The Committee has some ideas about contracting for supervision and have created a draft paper which will be available at the workshop. You are invited to bring your ideas and experience to contribute to this document

Supervision in Action – Applying the Seven-Eyed Approach in Supervision:  Winnie Duggan, Wellington

As supervisors and supervisees, we make constant choices about what we will focus on during the supervision session. Though usually only two people are directly present, the client and the working context may also be carried into the room in both the conscious awareness and the unconscious sensing of the counsellor.  Hawkins and Shohet (2001) have developed a model for supervision that takes into account where the focus of supervision is centred at a particular moment. (“The seven eyed supervisor model”)

This action workshop will give an overview of their model and then apply the ideas in practical situations that you might encounter as supervisors and supervisees. Come along prepared to be a supervisor, supervisee or client in a safe, fun setting, and explore the model and how you might be able to use it.

Getting to Grips with Evaluation of/within Supervision : Janet May, Waikato Institute of Technology

There has been an increasing call for counselling and supervision to engage more significantly with issues of evaluation as we face a predominance in our contemporary health and social services on competencies, evidence- based practice, practice- based evidence and outcome evaluation measures. This workshop draws on the findings of a four-year multidisciplinary research project exploring how the evaluation of supervision is conducted within four different professions (counselling, mental health nursing, psychology and social work) and analyzing what is presently occurring within each profession and their preferences for evaluation of supervision in the future.  The workshop will look at ways of ‘getting to grips with the evaluation supervision’ in a profession that values relational practice and meaning making rather than reductionist measures.

Supervising Counselling Students in Agencies and in Schools: Mike Williams, Supervsion Committee

Supervising counselling students at an agency or a school has challenges and benefits. Students in training require placement hours as part of their training and providers of placements may benefit from having additional volunteer counsellors. This interactive workshop will look at the many aspects of working with counselling students including contracting, monitoring, meeting tertiary providers expectations, monitoring limits of practice and on-site supervision. We will explore what such an arrangements offers an agency/school and what are the costs.

Workshop Details

- Puawananga Kaitiakitangi - Growing Cultural Competence in Cultural Supervision: Gay Puketapu-Andrews, Te Ahi Kaa and Te Aranga Hakiwai, Kaitumutumu

This workshop will lead participants through a process  that may be utilised in cultural supervision.

Measure or perish:  How to survive (and thrive) by assessing counselling outcome. Bob Manthei, Life Member

In the tight New Zealand funding climate there is a pressing need for counselling outcome research that demonstrates its effectiveness.

In spite of this need there remains a dearth of such evidence. In order to motivate practitioners to tackle this problem, various ways of gathering such data are discussed in terms of their simplicity of use, effectiveness and manageability. Two methods are recommended for use:  PCOMS and PSYCHLOPS.

- The Code of Ethics and couples counselling: Staying out of trouble: Sue Webb, Convenor, Ethics Committee

Queries and complaints about counselling with couples is a common area that the Ethics Committee deals with. This workshop will link the core principles and relevant clauses in the Code with some of the difficulties that can arise in counselling couples. These will include: contracting, even-handedness, confidentiality, communication between sessions, notes, self-awareness and competence.

- The Code of Ethics and multiple relationships: Staying out of trouble: Sue Webb, Convenor, Ethics Committee

Difficulties with dual and multiple relationships are common for counsellors in New Zealand and occur in city, provincial and rural settings. Problems can develop from seemingly harmless beginnings and at times these can lead to quite serious complaints to the Ethics Committee.  This workshop will link the core ethical principles and relevant clauses in the Code to multiple relationships. It will explore the differences between manageable relationships and those that can lead to trouble.
