A Supervision of Solidarity is informed by an ethics of justice-doing & solidarity, encompassing: resisting settler colonialism, centering ethics, doing solidarity, addressing power, fostering collective sustainability, critically engaging with language, and structuring safety. In the workshop we will:
• consider how to promote dignifying and generative supervision groups for therapy and community work
• deconstruct “case consultation” norms that don’t serve clients or practitioners, and consider what a “Culture of Critique” that is generative, expansive, connected and dignified might offer.
• consider practices of structuring safety and creating relationships of respect and dignity which can promote a culture of accountability that generates useful and rich critique.
• share some exercises for creating intentional supervisory relationships.
• create cultures of accountability that invite critique that are a resistance against surveillance practices of supervision
• practice examples of “Living Supervision”, and creating “Solidarity Teams” to assist practitioners to work in alignment with our collective ethic
