Practitioner coaching/supervision

At Peter Hanson – Conflict Resolution, we prefer the term ‘coaching’ rather than ‘supervision’. 

We understand the critical role that family FDR practitioners play in facilitating effective communication and resolving conflicts. We recognize that FDR practitioners, like any other professionals, can benefit from ongoing coaching and support to enhance their skills, gain new insights, and maintain ethical standards. That’s why we offer comprehensive practitioner coaching tailored to meet your unique needs. 

What the Attorney General’s Department says about Supervision:

Anyone conducting screening and assessment should receive regular professional supervision to ensure they are working in a way which accords with good practice, and to address other practice issues. The supervision should be:

  • Provided by a suitably qualified and experienced supervisor.
  • Conducted individually or, where appropriate, in a supervisor-facilitated group, or, where specialists or professionals are suitably experienced, in a peer group, and
  • Based on individual needs for supervision.
