Local Supervisor Training in NVR-informed Clinical Supervision


Practitioners require clinical supervision to support them in their work with NVR, so they can maximise their effectiveness and safely manage risk. This can only be delivered safely by professionals who are proficient in the delivery of NVR, and who have received additional training in recognising and addressing the supervisory needs of practitioners working within the approach. This training and consultation module helps local supervisors develop local support structures for NVR practitioners and deals with questions such as:

  • What skills, competencies, knowledge and understandings has the local supervisor gained in their own practice involving NVR? How has this shaped them as a person and as a professional?

  • What are the specific supervisory needs of practitioners using NVR? What impasses in practice do they need to help their supervisees overcome?

  • In which ways, and using which methods can a local supervisor address their supervisees’ needs?

  • How will the delivery of supervision be organised locally – individual, group supervision, peer supervision? What other models of supervision should be incorporated in the local support structure?

  • What is the overall structure of support for NVR practice within the local supervisor’s organisation? How does this support structure need to change or improve, to enable safe, effective and efficient practice of NVR?

  • With which managers within the organisation can the local supervisor develop a working alliance, to achieve the necessary service development?


The training develops the skill-base for specific ‘clinical’ supervision in NVR; this is particularly necessary for workforce development, risk management and safe, competent practice: working with issues relating to aggression, violence, destructive behaviour and trauma is especially taxing to the individual frontline practitioner, who requires high-level expert support to prevent burn-out or secondary traumatisation and maintain their emotional well-being.

Local expert supervision ensures that these workers perform at a high level of competence; they need their own support network, in the same way that they promote the family’s development of a functional support network when working with NVR.

Learning Outcomes

  • Participants will learn to recognise supervisory needs specific to the practice of NVR.

  • Participants will be introduced to supervision methods which can address these needs.

  • Local supervisors will be introduced to the specific use of reflecting team methods in the delivery of NVR.

  • As senior members in their teams, participants in this training will develop an understanding of the necessary organisational structures for delivering NVR safely and effectively, and how they can be instrumental in developing these support structures.
