Aim of the Developing Resilience Supervision programme:

This is a development programme which aims to identify and embed resilience-building habits and practices over an extended period of time. This is achieved through ongoing one-to-one and action learning support for greater effectiveness.

Following the programme, the participant is subsequently equipped to provide ongoing support to others and to provide a pair of colleagues with an episode of one-to-one restorative-style supervision support, in order to enable them to consider their own resilience and habits.

Participating in the training programme will enable participants to:

  • Understand what builds and damages our resilience
  • Recognise the emotional labour of care work
  • Have knowledge of approaches to building resilience – with a focus on evidence supporting Restorative Supervision
  • Be introduced to restorative-style supervision interventions
  • Recognising personal resilience factors and prepare to support others

Programme delivery

The programme is structured for delivery over a six to nine month period:

  • One day initial training
  • Three one hour one-to-one Restorative Supervision-style sessions for each participant
  • Two half-day action learning sets

The initial one day training event will develop knowledge and skills in relation to resilience in an individual, team and organisational context. It will review some of the evidence.

The three one-to-one restorative supervision-style meetings offer a confidential agenda-free space for participants to explore own resilience. The sessions also offer experiential learning so that participants analyse their own skills and ability to consider resilience, and to support and deliver supervision to colleagues.

The two action learning sets provide a forum for the participants to meet up and share experiences of learning about resilience, plan onward delivery or supervision, or share experiences from delivering restorative style supervision to others.
