The Restorative Resilience Model of Supervision: An organisational training manual for building resilience to workplace stress in health and social care professionals is a training pack and accompanying reader that is based on the model of restorative resilience supervision.
Restorative resilience supervision was first developed in response to the emotional demands of midwives, doctors and nurses caring for families who had experienced miscarriage and stillbirth.
The programme was designed to support professionals to process their workplace experiences and support them to build resilience levels to ensure they had future coping strategies beyond the initial life of the supervision sessions.
This resource allows an organisation to cascade the restorative resilience approach throughout their staff, initially ‘training a trainer’, who can then pass the knowledge on to any number of supervisors.
It includes full step-by-step instructions for both phases of this training, and a CD-ROM supplying all the handouts and PowerPoints needed to run the training. It also includes several video clips of Restorative Resilience in action, modelled by the author, Sonya Wallbank, to demonstrate what good practice should look like.
The reader gives an in-depth understanding of the theoretical principles and research background to the approach, and explores how to put the approach into action on an individual level. In combination with the training pack, this can be used to further the knowledge of all those learning about the approach, both the trainers and the eventual supervisors.
