This chapter explores systemic supervision with specific reference to trauma work and life-cycle issues. It includes a discussion of vicarious traumatisation and some of the symptoms associated with it. The focus is on supervision as a practice of reflection and strengthening personal competence (Bertrando, 2007) rather than for didactic purposes (Fruggeri, 2002). Our capacity to be self reflective is essential when considering the complexities and emotionally charged issues presented in trauma work. The importance of developing a programme of self-care to maintain clinical boundaries and integrity of clinical practice is essential.
