Group Supervision

I have now had my first group supervision session for my drop in centre.  It was an amazing experience to be amongst about 18 trainees bringing all sorts of issues to group discussion.  Confidentiality of client issues at drop in centres is usually within the context of the organisational framework and thus at group supervision you will hear  all sorts of presenting issues from drop in clients (counsellors maintain their own notes for their contracted clients who they might see at the centre).  I was struck by the dynamic in the room and of the incredible morale in the group.  Sir Alex Ferguson would have been proud.  Some trainees (in the 4th year) were having their last session that day and it was encouraging to hear their tribute to the group and the feedback they received from others.  They provided a very telling testimonial of their time at the centre and the benefit of having a robust group supervision framework in place.
