Subject outline

In this subject students are introduced to a variety of frameworks for understanding the processes of supervision in clinical practice, and invited to consider issues relevant to successful supervisory practices as well as those that pose challenges to effective practice. In the context of a small group, students also have supervised practice in working as a supervisor or consultant to a therapist. Students are alerted to the multi-directional nature of the reflective process between the therapist, supervisor, context and the family. Students are expected to be supervising or consulting to at least one other therapist in an on-going capacity.
