Facilitating Group Supervision and Reflective Practice

Delivered via interactive videoconference (Zoom platform). This workshop is a PsyBA approved one day Master Class which will provide participants who are already approved supervisors with ongoing AHPRA accreditation for 5 years. 

This workshop provides a framework for setting up, managing and evaluating competency-based supervision to enhance professional competencies for student placement, provisional and registrar programs. Skills covered include how to incorporate reflective exercises, case presentations, role plays, peer feedback and other structured learning tasks to facilitate active reflection and feedback in the group supervision session. Participants will have an opportunity to work in small groups, practising setting up supervision, determining learning goals and delivering and participating in a group supervision session. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss practical strategies to promote a reflective and structured framework for supervision aligned to the psychological professional competencies.



By the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge and skills in how to set up and deliver group supervision aligned to the developmental level of participants with consideration of core psychological professional competencies
  • Contract set and identify individual and group learning goals
  • Learn how to manage differences in group sessions and facilitate a reflective and reflexive learning space
  • Develop competence to apply safe role play in group supervision as a tool for learning
