Intervision techniques

Nowadays, work is combined with learning. And rightly so, because only in practice you can implement what was learned in training. It is not always easy to handle complex situations efficiently and effectively. Which is why a fresh perspective of a professional outsider can help. But employees can learn a lot from each other as well.

Intervision is a structured method with which you learn, together with colleagues, how to handle situations, questions and problems that arise in the daily working practices. Intervision, provided that it is well designed and well managed, offers valuable support for employees. They become aware of the effects of their actions, and will improve the supervision of colleagues. In addition, good intervision contributes to personal growth. By reflecting upon their actions, giving feedback and supporting each other, the participants go through a learning process that will strengthen their functioning.
