Topic:  Welcoming Voice in Supervision & Mentoring

Presenter: Alison Martin

Join in for an exploration of “voice” in supervision and mentoring. We hold a unique space for those we support to unearth, experiment with and strengthen what it is they really want or need to say. We will discuss ways to notice, welcome and reflect on aspects of voice, including notions of power, healing and identity. Come and share ideas as well as gaining practical tools to help this aspect of our practice.

Alison is a qualified Professional Supervisor and member of the Australasian Association of Supervision (AAOS). 

A qualified Social Worker and Christian counsellor, Alison has over 20 years experience in ministry, leadership, counselling and community engagement across church, community, health and education sectors.  She is passionate about supporting and strengthening the well-being, development and practice of those in front-line work with people in ministry, leadership, chaplaincy, education, therapeutic and allied health settings.

Topic:  Building Resilience for Supervisors and Mentors

Presenter: Dr Amanda Nickson

The workshop is based on best practice research and will guide participants through how to build resilience, recognising compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma and stress and provides some experiential exercises to practice building self-compassion.  It will help you understand the indicators of burnout, vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue and stress. We all work with vulnerable and complex clients and may find we put their needs above our own emotional and physical self-care needs. Dr Nickson will provide strategies to assist you to build resilience, understand when to seek professional help and utilise what is available to you such as supervision, peer supervision, and mentors. Next, some practical strategies to assist you survive and thrive in your caring role and there are some experiential components of the workshop including exercises on self-compassion and a meditation.

Dr Amanda Nickson is a social worker with over 30 years of experience and has expertise in supervision and adult education. She is a Pastor with ACC and a supervisor with Chaplaincy Australia and Scripture Union Australia. She is an author and speaker, passionate about helping individuals and organisations reach their full potential. She has a reputation for delivering quality training.  She has recently published a book, The Resilient Leader: How to beat being overwhelmed and burnout for sustainable leadership.   To learn more, visit Interactive Solutions athttps://www.interactivesolutions.org.au and https://www.amandanickson.com.au/
