Wheel of Supervision Training Part 1

Understanding the role of Supervisor across various models

Facilitators: Dr Alison Strasser & Adam McLean

Take our comprehensive pathway to fulfil the training requirements for accreditation as a supervisor*. Our unique approach to training is integrative and personalized, designed to enable you to develop your own informed and authentic voice as a supervisor. Our training is in 2 parts, each of them 5-day courses, followed by 10 hours of small group practice and a written and/or practical assessment, as required by your relevant association.

Gain a comprehensive understanding of the inter-relational aspects of supervision, the tasks and responsibilities of the role. The theoretical underpinning is existential-phenomenological and a variety of supervision models are explored. Develop a personal model of supervision that maximises best practice for you and your supervisees.

The primary attention is on individual supervision and the module will also provide insights into group and team supervisory work. Various theories and philosophical views will be examined with a focus on experiential activities, group discussion and supervision practice.

The module will encompass:

Introduction to the Wheel of Supervision
Models of Supervision
Creating Safety
What informs my supervisory practice?
Who am I as a supervisor?
Understanding the client
Understanding the supervisee
The responsible supervisor
