Quality supervision is consistently identified as a practice that directly benefits workers, agencies and clients. Effective supervision increases job satisfaction and morale, ensures clients are receiving optimal care through better communication and collaboration, enables reflection and learning, and builds a culture of best practice and innovation.

It comprises a mixture of theory and practice relating to supervision and covers a range of topics, including the history of supervision, supervision models, contracting, feedback, legal and ethical issues, diversity, and action methods.

Reference is made to the difference between line-management and clinical supervision, though the training emphasis is on clinical supervision. Group supervision is not covered as a specific area in this course, though the frameworks shared will be relevant.

Suitable for

Practitioners already providing clinical supervision, psychologists, social workers, family therapists, counsellors, and anyone in the helping professions who is currently or soon to be providing clinical supervision, and who have the capacity to practice supervision for the duration of the course.
