The Art & Science of Supervision
The Art and Science of Supervision is an 8 month course held
in person in Adelaide and via synchronous online participation
Trainers: Rachel Friebel and Gabrielle Enright
with Sessional Trainer Dr Pamela Brear
This inter-professional training brings together the Science of supervision that informs the ‘know-how’ of practice, together with the Art of supervision, including the dynamics of what is uniquely in the moment of the supervision encounter.
This training is offered to qualified and established professionals who work in counselling and art therapy, social work, mental health and pastoral care and other people-focused professions, and undertake or plan to undertake the provision of supervision. A distinctive feature of this 45 hour course – that involves teaching, interactive workshopping, practice opportunities and assessment – is the integration of creative arts-based supervision activities.
With supervision now being understood as a distinct discipline with its own skill set and knowledge base, many professional bodies are requiring their supervisors to undergo formal supervisor training.
This course provides supervision frameworks based on Australian and global research into best practice. It facilitates generic competencies that apply to a range of helping professions and is endorsed by the
Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) as meeting its Accredited Supervisor training requirements.
