Clinical Supervision Training – Devon Partnership NHS Trust

November 27, 2023 @ 9:30 am - November 28, 2023 @ 4:00 pm

About the event

This two-day online supervision training will explore the core elements and competencies of clinical supervision across a range of settings. Clinical supervision gives people the opportunity to reflect on their work and unlike line or case management, it provides opportunities to discuss challenges and successes, explore skills and knowledge development, model and practice specific approaches, and develop personal and interpersonal skills. The course will cover the supervisory alliance and role of the supervisor, setting up effective supervision contracts, using feedback and most importantly, how to support a sustainable clinical supervision structure and ethos at work. This training is designed for both clinical supervisees and supervisors alike.
