Overview of SEED: An ACT supervision model

Here’s a short overview of what to expect:

  • Understanding the SEED model: The SEED model of ACT supervision, developed by Sally and Jim, is a unique approach designed to enhance the effectiveness of ACT supervision. The book explores the four key elements of the SEED model: creating a SAFE place, EXPLORING the context and functions, experimenting with EXPERIENTIAL methods, and DELIBERATELY practicing new developmental tasks. Learn how to integrate these key steps to elevate your supervision skills and optimise outcomes.
  • Other supervision frameworks: The book covers the SHAPE Framework of Contextual Behavioural Supervision, developed by Linda Nicholson and Eric Morris, the Four Phased Model of Emotional Awareness training, developed by Sonja Batten and Andy Santanello and discusses the differences between frameworks and models in supervision to highlight how the practice has evolved over the years.
  • Practical exercises for skill development: To help you become a more proficient ACT supervisor, exercises that bridge the gap between theory and practice are included. These exercises will equip you with valuable tools and techniques to apply in your own supervisory sessions.
  • Navigating common supervision challenges: Using examples of common obstacles in supervision Lee and Sally share insights on how they navigated them. Instead of offering prescriptive instructions, they empower you to draw on their own experiences to tackle similar challenges you may encounter in your own practice.
  • Advancing your supervisory practice: The final section explores ways to further develop supervisory practice including the importance of supervision of supervision and peer consultation practice and the supportive role the ACBS community can play in growth and well-being. Building connections, learning from others, and fostering long-term relationships with fellow supervisors is vital for ongoing development.
