During supervision, supervisors should support supervisees to reflect on their own practice to identify.
You may agree with the supervisee that they bring data and evidence of their practice to the supervision meeting and discuss any insights that they have gained from these experiences. These should be linked to the supervisees goals and objectives so that progress can be tracked.
For example, if one of the supervisee’s objectives is to become proficient at performing mental capacity assessments, they may bring evidence of any training that they have undertaken and some examples of assessments that they have performed. They may discuss with the supervisor any difficulties that they have with this task and what they feel they could do differently going forward.
The reflective process can help to bridge the gap between theory and experience and discussions with their supervisor may help them to discover new techniques to try and how to handle difficult situations.
