Living Our Values: Supervision and Feedback for Survivor-Serving Organizations

Title:  Living Our Values:  Supervision and Feedback for Survivor-Serving Organizations

Two-part Webinar Series

Part 1: Supervision, December 9, 2021

Part 2:  Giving and Receiving Feedback, December 16, 2021


Webinar Description:

Supervisors within domestic and sexual violence organizations must provide supportive guidance to lead and manage projects. Effective supervisors are trauma-informed, strengths-based, and highly relational. This requires the ability to engage in generative feedback that maintains mutual accountability and trust, advances equity, and supports professional growth.

This two-part webinar series is interdependent and participation in both sessions is highly recommended.  Participants will have the opportunity to use supervision and feedback tools, engage in practical exercises, and apply strategies to use personally and within their organizations.

As a result of this webinar series, participants will be better able to:

  • Explore different types of supervision and feedback strategies in order to discern the best fit for your work, style, and relationship with your peers.
  • Examine personal reactions to giving and receiving feedback and practice skills to regulate your response and promote ongoing communication.
  • Utilize tools and resources to build trust in your supervisory relationships and mutual staff support.
