MODELS OF SUPERVISION IN THERAPY

Enhance Your Knowledge Of Supervisory Competence
1-Day Professional Development in Supervision (7-hrs / 1-day)

The workshop is adopted from the recently published article about supervision models: Basa, V. (2017). Models of supervision in therapy, brief defining features. European Journal of Counselling Theory, Research and Practice, 1, 4, 1-5. Can be viewed at: http://www.europeancounselling.eu/volumes/volume-1-2017/volume-1-article-4/.

For the purposes of this training, the term 'Supervision' is utilised to describe the foundation skills relevant to supervisory relationships that can be adopted by a range of professionals of different training and accreditation background such as hypnotherapists, counsellors, psychotherapists, mental health nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, or anyone else in the helping profession.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Practicing supervisors who wish to use this day as a professional development activity to update their knowledge, through theory and experiential learning, in supervision models and thus enhance their knowledge of supervisory competence.
