About the event
Clinical supervision, time to reflect, a chance to build relationships and re-set.
The best thing we can do for ourselves as clinicians is maintain support, supervision and therapy to protect our well being. Psychotherapy, counselling and other professions have been under unique stress supporting the ever changing and more acute needs of clients in the last 3 years. Many clinicians are experiencing high levels of burn due to higher demand for services and increased stress collectively.
"The exhausting, demanding, and draining nature of psychotherapy makes clinicians an especially vulnerable crowd when it comes to the susceptibility of stress. For instance, sampling 182 clinicians, Luther et al. (2017) demonstrated that 52% of participants report working overtime hours in any given week, which resulted in feelings of alienation, symptoms of burnout, and reduced work satisfaction. Additionally, mental health work is stressful and has often been described as causing burnout, which involves chronic work-related stress, which is associated with emotional exhaustion and loneliness" (Luther et al., 2017; Rupert & Morgan, 2005; Sander & Bauman, 2020)."
At CCP we know the benefit of working collaboratively and want to share that with our community.
We believe with the right amount of support and connection we can avoid levels of burn out. We want to help clinicians feel rewarded, empowered and continue doing this valuable work. This group is appropriate for clinicians (social workers, psychotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, nutritionists, naturopaths etc) who would like an accessible way of maintaining supervision in a group setting.
After 5 years of supervising other therapists and the completion of extended training on supervision Carly is quite passionate about creating a space for therapists (and the like) to stay at their best doing this work.
Every 8 weeks we will meet on a Thursday morning with Coffee and snacks in our comfortable environment with an agenda as follows:
-Check in introductions
-Skill introduction (a topic or learning that reflects the needs of the group)
This group will focus heavily on ensuring the health and wellness of the clinician while exploring client/patient needs as we go.
This is group limited to 10 people.
Although we recommend signing up for all 6 sessions, we recognize this is not always possible. You can sign up for each individual meeting or all of them:)
We look forward to seeing you there.
