“The importance of relationships, both within the supervising session and ongoing as a way to stay connected was the most important aspect that I take from this program. The conversations, both in the groups and at lunch were very meaningful, both in content and in process. The building and nurturing of c collegial relationships as a part of the supervision process. Having taken this type of course before, I felt that this particular course was more meaningful to me in terms of personal and professional growth.”
