Allied Health MasterClass: Reflective Practice and Parallel Process 30 Nov 2022 (Videoconference)

Date & Time
30 November 2022 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
(UTC+11:00) Australia/Sydney

About the Workshop:

Delivered via interactive videoconference (Zoom platform). This workshop is a one day Master Class which covers theory and practice in implementing a reflective practice framework within a competency based supervision model of practice. Participants will develop meta competencies for setting up, facilitating and evaluating supervisee reflectivity in practice. Participants will learn the process of dialogical reflectivity using the micro skill of immediacy in supervision to facilitate relational engagement and develop supervisee relational competence. 

The workshop will assume supervisors already have the foundational core competencies of establishing a competency based framework for supervision as this workshop will extend on this knowledge in using reflexivity-in-action.

By the end of the workshop participants will:

Have a greater understanding of systemic theory and how to apply in a supervisory context

  • Improve awareness of, and be able to better manage self-issues that can interfere and detract from professional practice
  • Be introduced to the concepts of the “person of the therapist’ and its relevance in therapy and supervision  
  • Develop confidence and competence working with parallel process in supervision
  • Have a strong theoretical framework to apply systemic supervision in your workplace
  • Understand clinical presentations systemically taking into consideration multiple stakeholders, relationships and the interplay of mentoring and monitoring tasks in supervision
  • Know how to set up, practice and evaluate the effectiveness of systemic supervision in your workplace.

Workshop content
