Reflective practice and supervision supports all professionals working with families and their children. For professionals working with families who have experienced an NICU hospitalization, being able to think about the mental state of the parent, infant, staff and family members is essential to being engaged and supportive. Theories of mentalization, mindsight, interpersonal neurobiology and mindfulness are as important for reflective practice and supervision as they are for interventions with families and young children.
Cheryl brings many years as a master clinician and academician to the table to assist your staff and program in developing reflective practice skills and supporting supervisors in learning reflective supervision skills and behaviors. Funding sources have begun requiring reflective practice and supervision for programs they fund.
Cheryl can train your staff on the theoretical concepts mentioned above to develop and implement reflective practice and supervision. Research demonstrates that professionals who engage in this approach are more satisfied with their supervisors, their interactions with families and remain with their employer.
