Event Description


About the Workshop:
This one day Master Class covers the core competencies of ethical practice in supervision including understanding the multiple roles of the supervisor within different contexts (e.g. individual, peer, group) and with psychologists from beginner to expert (students, interns, registrars and experienced psychologists). The workshop will review how to identify and manage potential legal and ethical issues in supervision and how to apply ethical decision making in clinical and supervisory contexts. In addition the workshop will cover how to engage supervisees to manage professional issues with ethical maturity and minimise potential problems in both clinical and supervisory contexts. The workshop is interactive and will allow participants to review and discuss varied challenging issues in supervision such as dealing with resistant and problematic supervisees, providing feedback and evaluation, systemic issues, gatekeeping, role coflict and other specific clinical problems that can potentially challenge the supervisory process. A strong focus of the workshop is to provide ample time for reflective discussion and review of professional issues that arise in practice. 

Topics include: 
Integrating ethical awareness in clinical supervision; ethical guidelines in clinical practice and supervision; the supervisory relationship – building an alliance on solid ground; the limits of confidentiality; using the APS Code of Ethics to manage conflicts in supervision; managing the underperforming supervisee; using feedback and evaluation in supervision; informed professional practice and the development of ethical maturity; scenario reviews and small group practice and discussion.
