Narrative group supervision in mainland China: A collaborative and re-authoring journey — Tsun On-kee Angela


This paper documents collaborative supervision practices being used in the southern part of mainland China. The supervision is informed by narrative ideas that respect, honour, acknowledge and thicken the experiences, local knowledges and skills of both practitioners and the persons who come to consult them, and render their hopes and dreams visible. Through outsider-witness practices, practitioners acknowledge the persons’ local knowledges and skills, and practitioners’ knowledges and skills in life and practice are recaptured, generating new possibilities.
