WI-AIMH is offering a year-long professional development opportunity for Infant/Early Childhood, master’s prepared supervisors who would like to learn how to implement and provide reflective supervision within their programs while simultaneously receiving reflective consultation themselves. Our goal in offering this learning opportunity is to increase statewide availability and accessibility of reflective supervision and to support local agencies in pursuing IMH-Endorsement®.
The WI-AIMH Reflective Supervision Learning Collaborative is a 12-month process comprised of in-person learning sessions, and active implementation phases, with built in support throughout the process. It is designed for supervisors within a range of infant/early childhood programs—including, but not limited to:
- Birth to 3
- Home Visiting
- Early Care and Education
- Child Welfare programs
No previous experience providing reflective supervision is necessary, although it is helpful to have some knowledge and understanding of reflective supervision, including how it differs from other forms of supervision and why it is beneficial to professionals serving infants, young children and their families.
The learning is team-based and builds from the collective knowledge and experience of the group, with guidance and support from experienced providers and trainers of reflective supervision. The monthly reflective consultation hours that supervisors receive will meet the requirements for reflective supervision for IMH-Endorsement®. In turn, the reflective supervision hours that supervisors provide to their local staff members may prepare staff for their own IMH-Endorsement® application.
The cost of the 12-month learning collaborative is $1,000/participant; however, with the support of our state and foundation partners, we are able to offer this opportunity for half the cost at $500/participant. This value includes all five training days, attendance at the 2017 WI-AIMH conference, monthly 2-hour reflective consultation and all training materials. It does not cover travel or overnight accommodation costs.
The learning collaborative will accommodate up to 30 participants.
WI-AIMH will host two information calls to review the Learning Collaborative details, requirements and to answer questions. These calls will take place on:
- Tuesday November 15th from 12-1pm
- Wednesday December 14th from 12-1pm
For each call, please dial 1/712-770- 4010 and use access code: 258081.
Please carefully review the requirements and commitment needed to participate in the Reflective Supervision Learning Collaborative. We truly believe that fully participating in all components of the Learning Collaborative will yield the best results in terms of your learning, implementation and sustaining the practice.
