Supervision of our clinical supervision is essential to remain aware of our own biases and beliefs, and to receive support and ongoing development as a supervisor. It also offers an opportunity to look at challenges and dilemmas and deepen our learning process. This workshop will provide an opportunity to receive supervision of your clinical supervision in a small group using arts-based processes and discussion. This workshop is for art therapists or other health professionals who have already completed an art therapy supervision training course at La Trobe University and are looking to extend their skills of supervising art therapists or art therapy trainees.
