Interested in how to provide supervision through a trauma-informed lens? Hoping to interrupt team burnout and support your workforce retention? By nurturing our supervision skills and approaches through a practice known as Reflective Supervision/Consultation (RSC), we can embody the parallel process in which we as colleagues experience the same kind of relational dynamics we hope to encourage in our provider-client relationships.

This two-part series provides building blocks for foundational, conceptual, and applied information related to reflective facilitation/supervision, in both preventive and treatment settings for mental health professionals. 

Traditionally, RSC is mainly fostered in early childhood/ infant mental health settings; however, we offer these two workshops not only for Early Childhood & Education practitioners to strengthen their RSC skills, but for anyone (school mental health supervisors/professionals and other mental health supervisors/professionals beyond the school context) to explore how RSC can fortify our supervisor-supervisee relationships and overall team wellbeing.

Learn more about reflective supervision here, including the evidence behind its impact and how it actuates trauma-informed organizational culture: What is Reflective Supervision | Multiplying Connections.

In Part 1, Rouba Otaky, LMFT, will walk participants through the nuts and bolts of reflective supervision and consultation.

In Part 2, Rouba provides a deeper dive into reflective supervision and delves into cultural considerations, limitations and illustrates sample cases.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify three key components of reflective supervision and apply appropriate skills within their different roles and responsibilities as supervisors.
  2. Name at least four techniques that will address the needs of supervisees to be responsive to cultural and contextual needs and continue to develop a set of skills that help supervisees build these skills.
  3. State three ways that supervisors will strengthen and support skills that allow supervisees to explore ways that their own belief systems or internal reactions might be impacting care.

Foundations in Perinatal Mental Health & Navigating Culturally Concordant Care 

Culturally relevant perinatal mental health care recognizes and addresses the unique cultural, social, and contextual factors that influence the mental health and wellness of individuals during the perinatal period, which includes pregnancy and the first year postpartum. Addressing perinatal mental health within community mental health care is essential for promoting the well-being of individuals, families, and communities by ensuring early intervention, integrated care, reduced stigma, and access to support services during this critical life stage.

The Pacific Southwest MHTTC is proud to partner with Maternal Mental Health Now (MMMN) to offer this no cost, two-part workshop series covering the foundations of perinatal mental health and the impacts of addressed and unaddressed perinatal mental health on individuals, families and systems.

The first workshop in this series explores the essentials of perinatal mental health as well as practices and tools used by MMMN in California communities. Please note that attending workshop 1 is a prerequisite to attending Part 2. 

The second workshop delves into assessment and implementation approaches, with in-depth scenarios exploring referral options, mitigating risk factors and increasing support for perinatal mental health conditions. Participants will walk away with a foundational understanding of the whys and hows of engaging cultural humility and trauma-informed approaches in perinatal mental health care.

Notes

Audience

We invite community and general mental health professionals, and teams of two providers within the same organization to participate. Examples include: social workers, psychiatrists, counselors, psychologists, clinicians, therapists, physicians and peer support specialists.
