Supervision is a collaborative and professional relationship
Supervision is a collaborative and professional relationship that is developed with trust and cultural safety. One of the central purposes of supervision is to support the supervisee to explore issues that may impact on them in their work. It is a safe place to talk and explore innovative ways of addressing complex matters. Through supporting the supervisee, supervision provided by Yamurrah may indirectly support clients that the supervisee provides a service to as well.
