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.  This workshop provides participants with an understanding of the range of ethical and legal issues relevant to supervisors and supervisees, including confidentiality, dual relationships, direct and vicarious liability, duty to warn and informed consent and the related challenges of ethical decision making. In addition, the workshop will discuss ways to identify and manage issues that may arise in the supervisory relationship and deal with difficulties that can occur in supervision, including feedback, evaluation and managing underperforming supervisees. Pre-reading resources are provided, including revision documents of competency based supervision to ensure participants are familiar with the Board requirements.

  • Understand core competencies of ethical practice in supervision
  • Understand the multiple roles of the supervisor, including the role of evaluator
  • Have a solid understanding of professional boundaries and issues of confidentiality as related to professional practice issues in competency based supervision
  • Have a solid understanding and be able to apply professional standards of practice in all aspects of supervision provision
  • Understand ethical decision making in clinical and supervisory contexts
  • Be aware of legal responsibility and related decision making regarding ethical issues and clinical competence, and personal functioning
  • Be competent to apply ethical decision making regarding gatekeeping, monitoring and evaluation across all pathways
  • Be aware of and competent to manage challenging issues that may arise in the different contexts of supervision
  • Be able to identify and manage challenging supervisory relationships and difficulties
  • Be able to give difficult feedback and evaluation to supervisees
  • Be able to manage other challenging contexts of supervision (e.g. incompetent supervisee; role conflict, gender and religious issues).
