Supervision Conference UK 2020

Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 we have to postpone Supervision Conference UK 2020.
Despite the challenges facing us at this time, we have re-scheduled the conference and it will now be held on Saturday 27th February 2021. Still at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre.

· Tickets purchased will be rolled over to next year. We hope most of you will still be able to attend but refunds will be subject to a £15 charge to cover some of our costs.

· Workshops and masterclasses may be subject to change although we are working hard to keep the ones we have.

As we get more information about the shape of next year’s conference we will keep you informed. We are looking at online provision ie, webinars, in case we can’t run the conference next year for any reason.

· Bookmark were planning to bring a reduced price bookstall to our postponed conference. As most of the events they were due to attend in the Spring have understandably been put on hold, they are needing to have a 'clearance sale'. They are therefore currently offering people on our mailing list an extra 10% discount off the already reduced prices on their specialist website Just use the code 'Supervision2020' at the checkout for the extra discount to be applied.

In the meantime, Joan Wilmot and Robin Shohet are holding an online conference as part of the Independent Supervisor’s Network on 3rd July this year. More information from their website:

Stay well and healthy and we’ll be in touch with further information soon

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.

CarolineWe 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

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.
