Being a new Social Worker is exciting, hopeful, determined, and sometimes scary, frustrating, and disillusioning. It is a field in which we lose many amazing, talented people because we are not very good at taking care of our newbies. This is why I am passionate about providing a safe, positive, encouraging space for new Social Workers.
The very best way to do this is through Group Supervision. Why? Because when you are a trauma-informed, somatic practitioner like me, you know that the surest way to calm fear and resource a person is through social engagement! A heaping dose of, "Oh! I'm not alone!" goes a long way to healing, strengthening, and infusing confidence in a person. We know this for our clients, but, as the saying goes, we need to put the mask on our own face first.
This is why I focus my supervision on supporting the whole person.
I want to know how you are, first. I want you to know that, most likely, what you are experiencing is normal and you are doing just fine. Then, I want you to get the skills you need to navigate client interactions with confidence. Nobody likes feeling like you are supposed to know what to do and you don't know what to do! Then, I want to give you a place to explore and craft a career path that will take you where you want to go. For those Social Workers who dream of private practice (I see you!), I know you think it's hard and confusing and only special people get to do private practice. You're wrong. I mean, yes, I think those of us braving the world of entrepreneurship are special, but it's not hard, and yes, you CAN do it and you can do it sooner than you think.
I've designed my Clinical Group Supervision to be accessible by meeting twice per month. We're all busy and a weekly commitment can be so challenging. By meeting twice per month, we get to meet for 90 minutes which allows us to really get into something meaty. Whether it's case consultation, guest expert (did I mention there will be guest experts?), or exercises for visioning your career path, we will have enough time to really dig in. Also, payment is super easy with a monthly fee for both meetings.
Racking up those supervision hours is fast with group and individual supervision. If you would like to learn more about supervision with me or would like to apply, visit me here. I'd love to connect with you and help you Love What You Do!
