Clinical Supervision in Adult Mental Health:
Managing risk, self-care and ethics

About the Workshop:

This workshop provides a framework for competency-based supervision for supervisees working with clients who present with complex mental health and comorbid presentations. There is a focus on identifying risk and managing the often complex clinical issues that arise from working with clients who present with acute or chronic complex mental health presentations. Coverage of systemic issues and working within a multidisciplinary context and medical model is also addressed with regards to clinical management issues, reporting and confidentiality issues. Pre-reading resources are provided, including revision documents of competency based supervision to ensure participants are familiar with the Board requirements.

  • Assessment, evaluation and feedback using a competency based framework: developing metacompetencies in practice
  • Dialogical reflexivity – enhancing supervisee self-reflection and in-action

  • Have sound knowledge of the application of competency based supervision in adult mental health clinical contexts
  • Understand the principles of how reflectivity promotes independent thinking, improved clinician self-awareness, self-care 
  • Applying dialogical reflexivity in supervision evaluation and feedback
