Professional Supervision workshop

150 150 Practice Five

Professional Supervision is often discussed as a “must do” part of professional practice and organisational culture.
However, problems occur in its implementation. Often, supervisors have not been trained in the provision of supervision and rely on their own experiences (positive and negative) to inform their supervision practice.

Often, supervision occurs irregularly and haphazardly. Neither practitioners, nor the organization, benefit from that lack of engagement.

This workshop has been designed to clearly outline what professional supervision is, the tasks involved and the unique processes (both technical and emotional) that ensure its success.
A template will be explained that can both orient individual supervision sessions and a series of sessions over time, making the work meaningful to both supervisee and supervisor.
How a program of professional supervision can enhance the effectiveness of both practitioners and the organization as a whole will be outlined and the issues of engagement and investment will be addressed.
Unique to the Practice Five, the Professional Supervision framework is our two tiered structure that teaches the different requirements of supervising practitioners, team leaders and managers.
Performed and implemented correctly, Professional Supervision can provide engagement and effectiveness at an unparalleled level that significantly increases both personal and organisational performance.
