This is an AHPRA approved Supervisor Master Class. Psychologists who are endorsed supervisors are eligible to enrol in the Master Class. By undertaking this workshop psychologists will be eligible to apply for ongoing accreditation as a Board approved supervisor for a period of 5 years. 

This one day master class will provide supervisors with a framework for setting up, managing and evaluating competency based supervision, considering the wider context (demographics, client group and clinicians attending). The workshop will consider ways to apply a structured framework of supervision applying the Board-approved supervisor competencies as set by the Psychology Board of Australia. The workshop will offer opportunities to review how to incorporate these competencies aligned to student placements, intern and registrar programs, incorporating reflective practice using structured learning tasks within the supervision session. Participants will have an opportunity to work in small groups practising setting up supervision, determining learning goals, delivering and participating in a group supervision session.
