Snapshot view of the workshop
The first day addresses and reviews the theory of individual and group supervision, reviewing and extending the pre-work components. Relevant ethical issues involved in individual and group supervision are also explored. This is followed by an extensive experiential group supervision component. We also review the STEP UP model for the supervision sessions.
Day 2 The entire day is devoted to practice sessions working through real life scenarios in triads. Time is then spent, before and after lunch, with participants assessing and supervising 30-minute sessions in triads, as preparation for the final day assessment phase.
This is your formal assessment day where each person rotates through a triad, in turn, taking on the three positions of supervisor, assessor and supervisee. Each position is completed over a 60 minute period.

Describe the theory and best practice of professional supervision
