AHA National - Webinar: 'Stepping Back to See Further' with Zofia Dymitr
Reflective Practice for Homoeopaths - an introduction to working with peers in reflective practice
ACT, NSW, Qld, TAS, VIC: 7pm-9pm (AEST)
NT, SA: 6.30pm-8.30pm
As homeopaths we are “good listeners” – case taking is what we know we do best. But those listening skills can be refined and fine-tuned. Working with colleagues in small peer groups gives us the opportunity to explore cases, discuss case management issues and the ins and outs of day-to-day practice. Listening is an art, and by working with colleagues we can constructively refine our listening skills and increase our objectivity by learning how to give and receive feedback. All this is in line with the Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council ‘s Competency (CHCORG428A): “Reflect on and improve professional practice.”
What will you learn from this webinar?
You will learn:
- How to develop your reflective listening skills
- Give and receive constructive feedback
- Work with peers in small groups
- How to use a peer supervision toolkit
Peer supervision is low cost, and encourages every participant to be the “expert” supervisor. Peer supervision groups build our sense of community as we learn to listen to each other and develop our self-awareness.
"Having attended the webinar I now understand and see that this is a hugely important tool in being successful practitioners", Melanie Creedy, September 2014.
