Reflective Supervision

Reflective Supervision is a Core Infant Mental Health Principle.

Reflective supervision is:

A collaborative relationship for professional growth that improves practice by cherishing strengths and partnering around vulnerabilities to generate growth. Through this way of being, a holding environment is created--an emotional breathing space--where it is safe to explore accomplishments, insecurities, mistakes, questions, and different approaches to working with young children and their families.
