As you continue to prepare for the in-residence component of this course, be aware of how the Learning Resources contribute to your understanding of the supervision models, including group supervision.
Conducting effective group supervision sessions requires organization and planning. In the group format of supervision, there are typically one or two supervisors, depending on the size of the group. A group with 6 to 12 supervisees, for example, would typically have two supervisors. A small group with 4 to 6 supervisees may have one supervisor. Each supervisee is best limited to 15 to 20 minutes for presenting cases. It is best to avoid exceeding 6 presentations in a 90-minute session. Supervisees may present their cases by using various methods, including oral case presentations, modeling and demonstration, audio and video recordings, or experiential techniques such as role-playing, family sculpting, psychodrama, and gestalt. Weekly supervision groups provide the most consistent and intense learning, whereas monthly supervision meetings are more typical of training seminars.
