• Supervision 2021
  • 9th International Conference on Coaching Supervision

    The 9th International Conference on Coaching Supervision will be a one-day online event on 7th May 2021.

    This year's conference marks 10 years since the first conference we held - a significant anniversary. The conference launched in 2011 as an opportunity to bring to life the discussions that had been contributed to the first edition of 'Coaching & Mentoring Supervision: Theory and Practice'.

    Supervision practice and the research into it has developed considerably over the last 10 years, leading to the preparation of a second edition of the book, with many new contributors and new perspectives.

    With a theme of New Directions / New Perspectives, this year's conference will focus on both the new themes and directions brought by these new contributors and on how supervision responds to a changing world.

    David Lane: Ethics as a way of navigating novel issues for practitioners

    This presentation will go beyond the notion of ethics as conformity with an external code to consider it as a social construction. We are confronted with economic, political, societal and environmental issues so much so that, 'doing good' seems anything but a straightforward path. We also need to recognise that the world does not look like that from here - when here represents theories derived largely from western often white males. Some alternative perspectives for looking at the world from here, here and here will be considered.

    Zoe Cohen: Business as usual is over: coaching supervision in the Anthropocene

    • Zoe will touch on the following, and invite a rich reflection and conversation amongst us all:
    • Locating ourselves – where are we now? – what’s really ‘in the field’?
    • Thinking ahead to 2030 – 9 years left of the ‘decade of transformation’
    • Our interconnected crises – social inequality, political, economic, psychological
    • How systemic is systemic?
    • What is coaching supervision for, now?
    • How might we really help? – contextualised ethics as a lived practice
