PsyBA Master Class: Professional Practice and Ethical Issues in Supervision (Video Conferencing)

Date & Time
7 March 2019 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM


About the Workshop:

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 workshop covers theory and practice in implementing a reflective practice framework within a competency based supervision model of practice. Participants will develop meta competencies for setting up, facilitating and evaluating supervisee reflectivity in practice. Participants will learn the process of dialogical reflectivity using the micro skill of immediacy in supervision to facilitate relational engagement and develop supervisee relational competence. 

 The workshop will assume supervisors already have the foundational core competencies of establishing a competency based framework for supervision as this workshop will extend on this knowledge in using reflexivity-in-action.  Pre-reading resources are provided, including revision documents of competency based supervision to ensure participants are familiar with the Board requirements. Relational factors such as client- supervisee-supervisor parallel processes will also be examined with critical reflection of the supervisor- supervisee dynamics and implications for assessment and evaluation. 

By the end of the workshop participants will:

  • Have sound knowledge of the theory and practice of reflective practice supervision
  • Understand the principles of how reflective practice promotes independent thinking and reflective competencies in psychological practice and the development of specific therapeutic and professional skills
  • Develop specific supervisee relational and reflective competencies using supervision tasks (live, review of video/audio recordings) 
  • Develop skills to enhance supervisee exploration of cognition, behaviour, emotions in clinical practice, developing reflection-in-action, on-action and for-action
  • Be able to teach supervisees to apply self-supervision as a reflective intervention
