The course is designed to develop assertive attitudes in clinicians that encourage them to challenge and change their expectations of current NHS practice. Moving from a position of assuming the NHS will meet all their professional development, to expecting to actively lead their own.
In order to create an environment where change in NHS culture can take place, the training teaches the reflector to,
• actively lead their supervision session
• instruct their facilitator in what they want from the session
• bring all the agenda
• for facilitators to actively listen and help supervisees find their own answers - these concepts turn the traditional roles of supervision upside down
• develops reflective practice and analytical thinking
• challenges and improves communication skills.
• encourages client centred practice.
• demands leadership skills
• provides a supportive challenging environment
• encourages clinicians to take individual responsibility for their practice
Individuals are encouraged to take charge of their future, their learning, and their development.
