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. This is followed by an extensive experiential group supervision component. We also review the RISE UP model for the supervision sessions.


Day 2 begins with reviewing ethical issues involved in individual and group supervision. This is followed by practice sessions working through 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.
