These will be to check in about how the peer sessions are going, share learning, witness Fay modelling the supervisor role, learn how to use the FIG Model (which is the Mindfulness Association’s model of supervision – Facilitation, Inquiry, Guidance) and the MBITAC as a feedback tool and discuss practicalities such as the Supervision Policy and creating a Working Agreement.
2 video recorded talks:
One talk will explain the FIG model (Facilitation, Inquiry, Guidance) and one will describe the various documents we need to be familiar with – the Supervision Policy, Supervisor Good Practice Guidelines and the Working Agreement (Fay).
Commitment to a one hour session per week of peer supervision in pairs (20 minutes one person, 10 minutes feedback then swop)
Commitment to journaling between the peer sessions.
