Evening Session March 2019 Online Peer Group Supervision

Evening Session March 2019 Online Peer Group Supervision Session

Are you a dispute resolution professional feeling alone and isolated? Do you simply enjoy connecting and sharing with others?

If you understand the value of reflective practice we encourage you to make the time to participate in this professional development activity.

This event is a monthly online peer group supervision session for Mediation Institute Members and guests. Come along to share and discuss practice issues and examples, explore alternatives and share learnings in an informal and confidential group environment.

Format:

The format will depend on who comes. We can split into interest groups if there are three or more people interested in a specific style of mediation e.g commercial, workplace, elder mediation, Family Dispute Resolution, family group conferencing etc. Otherwise we’ll remain in a single group and discover what can be learnt from different approaches and contexts of dispute resolution.

Group Rules:

  1. Respect for each other and ensure that any feedback is constructive and considerate
  2. Maintain the confidentiality of clients by avoiding real names and identifying information – our focus is on the practice issues and learnings not gossip!
  3. Bring along your observations from interesting cases, questions you’ve been pondering and any other contributions that you think will be of interest to your colleges.

Group Supervision Sessions Update

We had our first Group Supervision Session for 2019 on Tuesday 29th January.

Peer Supervision

The session was held online with sixteen members from Queensland, NSW and Victoria in attendance.
 
The day time session that had been scheduled was cancelled due to lack of interest. We recognise that the timing was terrible so close to the return to school so hope that some of our members will be able to take advantage of the opportunity next month.
 
The group agreed to the last Tuesday of the month as the regular time for the session.
 
 

Mi Group Supervision Sessions

The Mi Online Peer Group Supervision Sessions are a way of supporting shared learning, collaboration and support for Mediation Institute Members.

We had a mix of NMAS Mediators, Family Group Conference Facilitators, Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners and Mediation Institute students in attendance last night.

The discussion ranged across a number of topics but an area of great interest for participants confirmed the absolute importance of good preparation for clients before mediation.

We’d like to take the discussion of this topic into the groups area of the Mi Members course which all students and members have access to.

Go to https://mi.study247.online/groups/41/ to check the discussion out and contribute.

What happens in Mi Group Supervision?

The group supervision sessions follow a format that helps ensure that participants are able to share and contribute.

  • Introductions and catch ups – we go around the virtual room for everyone to say who they are, where they are and what sort of work they do plus anything else that they want to briefly share.
  • Open Discussion – this is the open forum part of the session where participant can raise case issues, questions and comment on their views. It is unstructured with minimal facilitation other than keeping the focus on professional practice.
  • Insights and reflections –  this part of the session gives the participants the opportunity to speak about any insights and learnings that they want to share. We know from the study of the mind that it is important to talk about or write down insights in order to remember them so this is an opportunity to do that.

When is the next session?

The next sessions will be on the last Tuesday of February.

Again we’ll propose two sessions (day and evening) to accommodate the needs of members but will cancel if we don’t have three or more people registered.

Practice Development

One of the topics that came up was about practice development and this we deferred to our Practice Development Mastermind Sessions which will be on the 5th February at two time options.

We have 8 people registered for the day session and 4 for the evening session at this stage so the sessions will proceed but we’d like more participants to come along and share.
