Professional Practice Supervision

Fridays 6 & 13 August 2010 | 9.30am–4pm | Course Full - Wait list only

This course will examine and critique different approaches to professional supervision in the health, human and community services. It will identify key features of a working environment that can enhance or inhibit supervision. It will assist in identifying and developing knowledge and skills in the application of both staff and student supervision.

At the completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • demonstrate a knowledge of a range of models and theoretical approaches; eg. developmental, process and negotiation models to aid the supervision of staff in the health and human services
  • critique the relevance of these approaches in a range of practice settings
  • identify and develop supervision processes that are critical to the enhancement of practice and the appropriate strategies and skills to implement them
  • identify and analyse key features of an organisational environment in which supervision plays a positive role and demonstrate the skills that are required to maintain this, and
  • analyse issues that may arise in the supervision process and identify appropriate strategies to address these; eg. the influence of power on the relationship between supervisor and supervisee, structural inequalities such as race, gender, age.
