ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
 

Clinical Supervision in Adult Mental Health: Managing Risk, Professional and Ethical Issues 

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 competency-based supervision for supervisees working with adult mental health 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.

By the end of the workshop participants will:

  • 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 
  • Be aware of the importance of reflective supervision for therapeutic intervention and the development of meta competencies in practice
  • Be able to apply reflective practice & model reflectivity to supervisees
  • Identify and manage the challenges of working in the field of adult mental health and complex comorbid clinical mental health presentations 
  • Be able to identify and manage complex risk, legal and ethical issues 
  • Review of clinical/workplace issues brought to the session by participants.
     

WORKSHOP CONTENT:

  • Understanding the ethical, legal and risk factors facing the supervisee working in an adult mental health context
  • Confidentiality – managing competing demands of system, client and family (Case review scenarios and critical decision making in practice) – small group discussion and role plays
  • Assessment, evaluation and feedback using a competency-based framework: developing metacompetencies in practice
  • Dialogical reflexivity – enhancing supervisee self-reflection and in-action.
