I liked and benefitted from Alia's facilitation style. She made sure to guide us through understanding the supervision framework, and also offer us space for self-reflection. I also appreciated how she connected the supervision framework to being trauma-informed. The link between the two was evident as she gave us specific ways and directions to be more trauma-informed in our day-to-day supervision and the potential progressive discipline of team members.
