David Clutterbuck and I are writing to ask your help in taking forward some research on contracting in supervision. We have both been aware of how often the issue of contracting, or more accurately, at times omissions in contracting, seems to lie behind some of the challenges that are brought to us in supervision sessions.
We wondered how widespread this experience was among supervisor colleagues. So we have put together this short survey. However, we thought it would be helpful to all of us as supervisors to check our thinking with both our supervisees, and their clients. Hence, we have done 3 surveys, one for supervisors, one for coaches and one for clients.
Please could you complete the one for supervisors? Please could you also ask some of your supervisees to complete the one for coaches and ask them to get some of their coachees (clients) to complete the one for clients. The one for clients has a short explanation of what contracting is at the start.
Each survey will take around 10 minutes to complete, slightly longer if people choose to complete a question where examples of challenges are offered. Here are the links:
We would be most grateful if you could complete this by Sunday 25th November. Our aim is to share the findings widely - aside from any written articles, we will be happy to invite any AOCS participants to a webinar next year sharing the findings.
Warm wishes and many thanks,
Eve and David
