Date & Time: Thursday 2nd May, 11am – 12.30pm

Title:  “Hospitable Supervision and Mentoring – Holding Space for Diversity in Complex Times”

Gather with other members for a lively exploration of the diversity of perspectives we encounter as supervisors and mentors in these complex times.  We will reflect together on maintaining hospitality, professionalism and integrity when our supervision and mentoring spaces become the arena for difficult conversations, polarized personal or political views or controversial issues that challenge our own belief systems, faith perspectives or personal ethics. We will discuss ways of creating safe, hospitable environments for our clients, given the complex worlds they work and minister in.  We will also consider our own values, experiences and needs in the process – introducing breath prayer as a self-care tool.

Presenter:  Alison Martin

This is an opportunity to informally connect with other Supervision Interns, ask questions and share how you are going in your supervision journey. Find encouragement, support, professional connection and information while you are gaining the experience required to become a Recognised Supervisor.  It’s a great group for those who are new to Chaplaincy Australia and/or supervision. It’s optional, free for current Intern members and around lunch time, so BYO food and drink 🙂

Facilitated by Recognised Supervisor & National Supervision & Mentoring Coordinator, Alison Martin
