Professional Practice Supervision
FOR PRACTITIONERS IN HUMAN, HEALTH, COMMUNITY AND SOCIAL SERVICES
Fridays 16 & 30 November | 9.30am3.30pm
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 two day workshop participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate a knowledge of theoretical approaches to professional practice supervision of staff;
- Identify and develop supervision processes that are critical to the enhancement of professional practice and the appropriate strategies and skills to implement them;
- Critique the relevance of these approaches in a range of practice settings;
- Identify and analyse key features of an organisational environment in which supervision plays a positive role and demonstrate the skills to do this;
- Analyse issues that may arise in the supervision process and identify appropriate strategies to address these (for example the influence of power on the relationship between supervisor and supervisee, structural inequalities such as race, gender, age).
