Clinical Supervision for Role Development Training (8-Day foundational training)

‘Clinical Supervision for Role Development Training’ is the initial foundational training for equipping potential Clinical Supervisors. The training is completed over 8 days and includes a 3 day introductory workshop, a 3 day follow-up workshop (within 4 months of the first training) and a final 2 day workshop (approximately 4-5 months later). The course is interactive, experiential and light-hearted.

Target group
All health and other professions/groups providing human support services in challenging work environments.

Course content
The training equips clinical supervisors with knowledge, a variety of techniques and a skill set for use in Clinical Supervision practice. These include role theory, role analysis, concretisation techniques, and role training. Other innovative techniques such as ‘this year / next year’ and action learning techniques are included in training. The training is pragmatic with much time spent on the practice of supervision sessions and the development of the participant’s ability and confidence in the supervisor role.

Revise & Restore Training (Day 9 & 10)

The ‘Revise & Restore’ 2 day training acts as the initial ‘refresher’ following the ‘Clinical Supervision Role Development Training’.

Course content
This training revises techniques used in the initial 8 day training and introduces additional advanced techniques for use in individual and group Clinical Supervision.
