Reflective supervision is a process through which supervisors and direct service staff work together to understand the children and families that they serve, as well as their own feelings about this often emotionally difficult work. This paper is designed to provide directors, administrators, and staff with a tool for relationship-based Early Head Start services and describes how some programs have implemented reflective supervision.
This online tool supports home visiting staff and those who support them by presenting regulations, strategies, publications, and resources in a way that’s interactive, flexible, and adaptable to people’s needs. It offers the readerthe opportunity to read, review, rate, save, and organize material that’s engaging, supports understanding, and ultimately contributes to their expertise as home visitors and home visiting supervisors. It has been developed by the Early Head Start National Resource Center, and includes numerous resources produced by other national centers.
