Supervision Conference UK 2020
Supervision on the Edge: World in Crisis, World in Trauma
Saturday 28th March 2020
Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, Birmingham
In supervision, we are facing a time of political uncertainty and environmental threat. As supervisors and supervisees, how do we respond?
As turmoil increases and affects us professionally, personally and emotionally, we hope this conference will offer containing frameworks, creative ideas, and ways to move forward collaboratively.
We are delighted to welcome our keynote speaker, Caroline Hickman (MSc Social Research; Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist; Adv Cert Transpersonal Therapy).
Caroline is a member of the Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) Executive Committee; psychotherapist & therapeutic social worker. She is currently researching children's relationship with the climate and biodiversity crisis, developing therapeutic responses to climate change trauma, and looking at how a ‘climate crisis lens’ can be used in practice.
The CPA is keen to explore how psychology and psychotherapy can help in tackling climate change https://www.climatepsychologyalliance.org/
Caroline teaches on the social work degree at the University of Bath, works with various charities to provide psychotherapy to children following trauma and has a psychotherapy practice.
As a social scientist Caroline is mainly interested in relationships between people and families, between people and the natural world, and society. Most of her work involves helping people to develop better relationships. Her passion is to use everyday stories to explain complicated psychology.
The day is suitable for anyone interested in supervision within the helping professions, either as a supervisor or supervisee.
We hope that you will join us at the 6th Supervision UK conference organised by Severn Talking Therapy, which we hope will be an informative and inspirational day. It will start with a keynote speech, followed by a choice of Masterclasses and workshops. Throughout the day there will be opportunities for delegates to reflect on issues raised and network with fellow practitoners and supervisors.
This conference will be held on Saturday March 28th 2020 at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, 1046 Bristol Road, Birmingham, B29 6LJ.
