Trauma Informed Supervision

Delivered via interactive videoconference. 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. 

The study of neurobiology has made a significant impact in recent years on deepening knowledge about the effects of abuse and trauma and the impact working in this space has on the health professional. This workshop provides participants with an opportunity to critically examine the practice of competency-based supervision using a trauma informed practice lens. Supervision approaches to help prevent vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue and burn out will be discussed with the view to help supervisors strengthen their ability to support practitioners integrate self-care strategies in their practice. Supervisors will learn how to structure supervision to ensure supervisees apply appropriate culturally-safe assessment and trauma informed treatments which at the same time, apply reflective and reflexive practice to heighten supervisee awareness and responsiveness to the possible adverse impact of their trauma work. This includes direct clinical work with clients and within organisations and settings that deal with critical issues/presentations such as emergency services, inpatient services and other services where there are complex at-risk presentations.


By the end of the workshop, participants will have:

  • An increased understanding of the complexity of working with clients who have experienced relationally based complex trauma and the challenges for supervisees
  • Insight into the personal, professional and organisational impact of trauma
  • Developed supervision strategies and processes to ensure that trauma-informed practice remains at the forefront of practice when working with clients who have experienced trauma
  • Developed a framework/model of reflective and reflexive practice for trauma-informed supervision practice within a competency-based framework
  • Developing supervisee competencies for boundary setting and self-care.



  • Goals, nature and function of supervision within a trauma-informed practice framework
  • Setting up and implementing a reflective practice supervision framework within trauma-informed services
  • Sensitivity to trauma in the supervisory context
  • Application of a competency-based and reflective psychological practice
  • Setting up and maintaining safe supervision
  • Maintaining boundaries and sound ethical practice in supervision
  • Self-care of the professional
  • Managing complex presentations, ethical issues and agency-related challenges
  • Balancing educational, support, and administrative roles in supervision
  • Evaluation of the supervisory process and diversity (managing expectations and responsibilities; providing feedback in trauma-informed supervision)
  • Ensuring supervisors develop solid skills and knowledge to manage the supervisory relationship (e.g. managing developmental stages of supervision; vicarious trauma; self-care; boundary setting)
  • Knowledge of supervision as it relates specifically to trauma-informed supervision theory and practice, including ethical and professional practice in trauma-informed supervision
  • Assessment of supervisee competency (application of therapeutic interventions in trauma-informed practice).
