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.
WI-AIMH will host an information call to review the Learning Collaborative details, requirements and to answer questions. This call will take place on:
- Wednesday, November 1st, 2017 from 12-1pm
To join the call, please dial 1/712-770- 4010 and use access code: 258081.
