Last week I participated in a spiritual care and supervision conference in Hobart organised by the Tasmanian Association for Supervised Pastoral Education (TASPE). I was drawn to go to the conference to meet the Keynote speaker, Michael Paterson as I’ve benefited so much from his writing and YouTube clips in the past.
His talks reflected brilliantly on the personal, professional and political perspective of supervision and chaplaincy.
Michael highlighted the importance of supervisors being in touch with their own vocation as pastoral carers, so engaging in one’s own supervision is critical.
Listening to Michael’s broad international experience reminded me of the importance of relationship in the supervision experience.
