Collective Supervisions
Improvement of practice

“Deploy your resources, work on your difficulties”

Vincent GERARD

The practice supervision times are essential moments in the continuous process of learning, improving practice and developing the professional skills of the practitioner of the helping relationship.


You have completed your training with LACT, we offer you the opportunity to stay in touch and accompany you in the process of setting up or perfecting your practice. In this context, we offer two-hour group supervisions during which a maximum of three situations can be discussed, and then debriefed with all the participants, under the supervision of Vincent GÉRARD.

The frequency of these supervisions will be one session every two months.

Objective of the module

Observe, correct and perfect your practice based on a strategic, communicational or relational difficulty encountered in the implementation of its practice of strategic systemic intervention, exposed within the framework of direct supervision (on your own case ) or that of observation (of other supervised cases).

  3. which brings me to... (do, say, think) 
  4. with the following effects (to be described)
