Competency Based Supervision Training

This 2-day skills-based workshop is for psychologists, counsellors and allied health professionals. The interactive workshop (offered either as face-to-face or via Zoom) provides participants with a thorough understanding of the principles and practice of effective clinical supervision. You will learn about contemporary theories of competency based supervision and learn how to set up, manage and evaluate both individual and group supervision contexts incorporating best practice standards and reflective practice.

For videoconference workshops: The workshop will be delivered via the ZOOM meeting platform using breakout rooms for small group discussion and practice sessions. You must be able to join the workshop using your camera and have sound for class participation. Numbers are strictly limited to 21 to allow for interactive class activities, maximizing your learning experience, just as in the classroom. This workshop provides comprehensive resources and handouts offering participants a clear theoretical framework in how to set up, deliver and evaluate supervision.

All course notes are provided electronically, including references, PowerPoint presentations and a Supervision Resources Handbook.
