Webinar Description:The opportunity to reflect deeply on practice with colleagues is not only a comforting support, but also a fertile learning opportunity. Unfortunately, the opportunity rarely arises in workplaces, where supervision too often happens on the fly, and case conferences forfeit, open-ended exploration in favour of a quest for single answers. Reflective communities offer a generative alternative. They bring together practitioners from diverse work settings for ongoing sharing of practice and theory using variations on reflecting team formats to create safety and encourage multiple viewpoints. David will share his experience creating these forums for peer supervision and professional development, highlighting some key learnings based on years of collaborations with counsellors in the Ottawa area. Some familiarity with reflecting team traditions is helpful but not necessary for this webinar.
