Abstract

This paper describes a quest towards relational artistry in the development of a systemic training programme in social care. As part of tiered delivery addressing staff at different levels in the workforce a systemic group supervision process was introduced, adapted from Proctor’s (1997) ‘Bells that Ring’ model. The paper describes the adaptation and delivery of the model through live supervision of senior practitioners by Systemic Mentors working in situ alongside the supervision groups. The project expanded in response to feedback leading to further initiatives to embed systemic ideas. These included a ‘systemic rucksack’ containing sets of cards to guide the supervision process. ‘Systemic champions’ went on to co‐produce and deliver workshops on key concepts for the whole workforce and to engage frontline workers and families in creating the next steps in the project.
