1 The Supervisory Hour: Supervision is an experience-based and enquiry-based approach to learning and growth - an adult learning model assumes that people bring gifts and skills and can identify areas needing growth. It is a disciplined reflection on the practice of ministry. Its focus is the individual in the practice of ministry. Note: If the focus is only the ministry - we are getting into planning. If the focus is only the person - we are getting into therapy. The focus of supervision is the intersection of both the ministry and the person. For instance: Mary’s learning objective was to improve her level of comfort in visiting the elderly. However, over the first 6-7 weeks she had only visited with young families. Her Supervisor decided to raise the issue with Mary and in supervision tried to stay with her feelings about visiting the elderly. The Supervisor found out that her grandfather had lived at home and had died of cancer less than a year previously. Mary became aware that she was still dealing with her own grief over her grandfather’s difficult death. Her personal issue was affecting her ministry.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
