Fighting Fires in Early Intervention Supervision: Trading the Axe for Mr. Rogers's Slippers
Alexander, Laura; Gallen, Robert T.; Salazar, Ruby; Shahmoon-Shanok, Rebecca
Zero to Three (J), v32 n6 p32-38 Jul 2012
When Pennsylvania's Early Intervention system implemented an early intervention-reflective supervision project, modest expectations for change were anticipated, given the limited amount of time and funding for the project. In this article, one participant tells the story of her professional development, which enabled her to augment her skills as an administrative supervisor, focused mainly on the clerical tasks of supervision, with the process approach of a reflective supervisor, someone who helps providers relate and reflect with clients as they become more aware of their own internal processes. The authors discuss the factors that prompted her evolution and learning and describe how an unexpectedly powerful "transformational enterprise" had been initiated among participants.
