Competency-Based Clinical Supervision Workshop By Mark Donovan

Organized by the SRP, this 2-day workshop introduces participants to the competency-based model of clinical supervision that has now been widely adopted across the globe for professional training.  Each of the main competency domains within supervision is described, and interactive exercises introduce participants to how to address the development of competency domains within regular supervisory practice.  Key elements of clinical supervision are incorporated into the workshop, including how to build a strong supervisory relationship, and techniques for encouraging reflective practice.
