Supervision - Competency Assessment and Feedback Skills in Supervision
Clinical Supervision is central in healthcare professions. Supervision plays a key role in the professional context such as supporting the practitioner and providing quality assurance, evaluation of competence, educational development and ultimately improved patient care. This series of workshops is designed to develop your skills and knowledge in providing clinical supervision. The workshops are for healthcare professionals (e.g. Psychiatry, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Nursing, Social Work) who will be or are already providing supervision as a part of their role. In total there are 5 workshops on different topics within Clinical Supervision, each with different learning outcomes based on Roth and Pilling’s generic supervision skills
The format of delivery will be a combination of interactive teaching, group work involving role-play (coach group) and discussions. Attending workshops is flexible, so you can pick and choose which workshop or all, you would like to attend. The workshop is provided by the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme, School of Psychology, Queen’s University Belfast. The facilitators are both experienced in providing supervision training to psychologists.
