From Rupture to Repair: Dietitian Supervision as an Innovative Vehicle to Healing

The experience of relational and learning-related ruptures can be common amongst Eating Disorder Dietitians, and is proposed to be a limiting factor in willingness to engage in self reflection and growth-oriented learning in Supervision. Additionally, Supervision as a practice is not well established within the Dietetics in general, nor within the ED Dietetic field. This workshop will first briefly establish a shared understanding of the key purposes and functions of Supervision. We will then move beyond the surface to explore the link between experiences of learning ruptures and how Supervision can contribute, in innovative and significant ways, to workforce sustainability, repair and healing that directly benefits the clinician, our clients, our communities and our field.
