In this video Bob Cooke TSTA talks specifically about a Process model of Supervision.
The Process model that Bob describes in this video was developed by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shoet.(1989)
This model is sometimes called The “7 eyed model of supervision”, it can be used to describe the process of Supervision ,as well as a “map”of Supervision for Supervisors and Supervisees alike.
Bob goes on to explains the different modes of the Seven eyed model,they areas follows:
If you are focusing on “Mode One” within this model the Supervisor will be helping the Supervisee focus on their “Behavioural observation” skills when working with clients.
If you are focusing on “Mode Two” the focus will be on the strategies and techniques that the Supervisee will employ when working with their clients.
If you are focusing on “Mode Three” then the Supervisor will be helping the Supervisee look at the “Dance” between the Supervisee and client.
If you are focusing on “Mode Four” the Supervisor will be helping the Supervisee to look at the Transference and Counter-Transference within the therapeutic relationship.
If you are focusing on “Mode Five” you will be looking at the relationship between the Supervisor and the Supervisee.
If you are focusing on “Mode Six” you will be looking at the Counter-Transference of the Supervisor.
And, finally, if you are focusing on “Mode Seven” you will be looking at the organisational, and wider environmental restraints on the supervision.
This model above provides a systemic model for examining the processes of Supervision.
The other way to use this model of Supervision is to help the Supervise/Therapist look and understand the Parrall Processes that might emerge in the Supervisory relationship.
The video above, is essential for anyone wanting to understand the Peter Hawkins and Robin Shoet Process model of Supervision .
