How our Clinical Supervision Course events have supported your learning and development. I learnt: to apply the Maslow Hierarchy and Johari window into planning a supervisory session; that supervision needs to be individualised - in terms of learning needs and methods of giving teaching and feedback; that being mindful of learners in difficulty - appreciation for external work factors particularly. I enjoyed: ability to meet other members of the NHS, nice to have a different range of participants and how things are different in different areas; the different mixture of theory, group discussion and group work; the engaging presenters, good activities. Enjoyed the scenarios sections and the video to provide feedback on.
