A Practical Guide to Reflective Supervision
Sherryl Scott Heller and Linda Gilkerson, Editors 2009
This book outlines the key steps in creating a system of reflective supervision within an early childhood program to improve services, support staff, and better meet the needs of children and families. With chapters written by leading experts, this book provides answers to the critical questions that every program needs to know to launch reflective supervision. The authors provide strategies for conducting a reflective supervision meeting, advice on how to repair ruptures in the reflective supervisory relationship, and ways to combine reflective supervision with administrative supervision. The book also lists activities that can be used to build the reflective capacity within a staff. No program should be without this valuable resource.
