Relational Supervision webinar for AOCS members

Relational Supervision webinar: Unfolding within and between 

This webinar will explore an understanding of relational supervision and the stance and practice of working relationally as a supervisor.

  • What is ‘relational’ supervision? 
  • How is it the same as and different from ‘non-relational’ supervision? 
  • What are relational lenses for normative, formative and restorative supervision? 
  • How might you use yourself – and metaphor, intuition, imagination and improvisation to reveal yourself and the other from within yourself – in relational supervision? 


We are always in relationship – with ourselves, with others, with issues and their significance in different situations, contexts and cultures, here and now. Noticing, attending to and working with the relational ‘non-conscious’ in the moment often reveals what supervisees didn’t know they knew. It also often reveals in a supervisor’s use of self a felt sense of the experience of the supervisee. 

This webinar is free to AOCS members; non-members can participate for only £25.
