DescriptionClinical Supervision Training
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.
This course is comprised of a mixture of theory and practice relating to supervision and covers a range of topics, including supervision models, trauma-informed supervision, contracting, feedback, legal and ethical issues, power, diversity, use of self, 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.
