Over the last few years, the focus on allied health professional wellbeing has increased, and alongside that, the attention to and interest in supervision as an essential support for allied health workers has been growing. We know that many allied health staff find themselves in a position of supervising professionals and/or students almost ‘by default’ without having the benefit of very much training, if any. Many professional groups and health organisations are now encouraging and facilitating access to supervision training so supervisors can be confident, effective and supported in their supervision work.
The Essential Skills workshop is for any allied health professional - those who would like to supervise in the future, those who have been supervising and not had the opportunity to do any training, and those who are experienced supervisors who want to refresh, update and enhance their supervision skills. This training is also for allied health workers who are supervisees themselves, to learn how to effectively use their own supervision, and how to informally support their colleagues. Topics will include -
- Reflective Practice - what it is and how to teach it
- The Seven Eyed Supervisor - a supervision technique and structure for planning and delivering supervision
- Difficult Conversations - how to have them and how to survive them
- Types of Supervision - how individual, group and peer supervision types differ in practice
- The ’Self Care’ Myth - how to truly look after yourself and your supervisees
- Supervision AMA - ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on everything supervision related
These topics are drawn from Natalie’s comprehensive five day supervising training course, Successful Supervision, and reflect the modern challenges of being a allied health professional and supervisor. Natalie’s training combines her expertise, experience and training from over 20 years of supervising, along with clinical work, educating, policy development and leadership, alongside concepts from the work of retired UK psychologist and supervisor Michael Carroll PhD. Natalie looks forward to welcoming you to this exciting training opportunity for connection, learning, reflection and professional development.
