Reflective supervision emphasizes the collaborative process between supervisor and supervisee. It involves active listening, thoughtful questioning, hypothesis building, and suggestions for intervention.
Reflection means learning about an infant/child and her family, developing an appreciation for the perspectives of the family members, and identifying and considering alternative approaches to intervention. Reflection also means “stepping back” and “slowing down,” considering the issues of the family in some detail, before proposing solutions.

Here are some ideas about how to organize case presentations. The following elements should be considered as you put together your presentations.

  1. Begin with some questions you have about the case you want the supervisor to help you think about.
  2. Present basic information about the family, demographics, presenting problem, how the referral came to you, and what the family’s request is.
  3. Describe your beginning relationship with family members.
  4. Describe your observations—of the infant/child, of the parent(s), of the child-parent relationship, of the child in settings other than the home.
  5. What are the family’s strengths and difficulties?
  6. Where are you in the process, i.e. just beginning an assessment, developing hypotheses about the family’s issues, implementing a treatment plan, in the middle of treatment? Discuss what have you tried so far, what seems to be working, and what roadblocks or sticking points you have encountered or anticipate.
  7. What feelings does working with this family evoke in you?

In presenting your work, please use only first names, initials, or pseudonyms, and avoid specific information that could potentially identify clients.
