PsyBA Master Class: Supervision of Supervision 16 August 2021 (Videoconference)

Date & Time
16 August 2021 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
(UTC+10:00) Australia/Sydney


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 workshop provides a framework for supervisors to reflect, review and monitor their supervision practice. Supervisors attending this workshop will be provided with an opportunity to review and evaluate their supervision practice, and provide opportunities to discuss how they supervise, provide feedback and evaluate their practice of supervision. This will be done by supervisors providing examples of their experiences of supervision/questions and ‘stuck points’/dilemmas for review and reflection. In the final part of the day, supervisors will be offered a framework for how to conduct ‘Supervision of Supervision’ sessions, (i.e. how to review the supervision practice of psychologists presenting their supervision questions in supervision).
By the end of the workshop, participants will:
• have an opportunity to reflect on the supervision they offer, with opportunities for reflection and discussion on how to identify possible stuck points and be better positioned to manage these in the future
• have an opportunity to participate in a live ‘Supervision of Supervision’ demonstration session using material brought to the workshop by participants
• begin to consider their role of supervisor and how to provide ‘Supervision of Supervision’ to others
• understand client-supervisee / supervisee-supervisor (parallel process) and how to identify and manage unhelpful relational patterns that might impact adversely on feedback and evaluation
• consider the use of ‘self’ in the therapeutic and supervisory contexts and how relational reflection enhances reflexive and reflective clinical and supervisory practice.

Workshop structure/content
Part 1: Review of the core principles of effective supervision. How to structure supervision and set learning goals aligned to the Board-approved supervisor competencies as set by the Psychology Board of Australia.
Part 2: A practice framework will be provided for supervisors to offer ‘Supervision of Supervision’
Part 3: Review of practice. Each participant will provide an example of one or more supervision sessions allowing for opportunities to reflect and refine the practice of:
• structuring and contracting supervision sessions aligned to core competencies
• feedback and evaluation skills
• managing practice issues/dilemmas and challenging supervisees.
