This workshop reviews the basic components of supervision, locates reflective practice within a competency-based approach, establishes a clear frame for reflective practice, outlines methods for providing feedback in supervision, and then leads participants through experiential exercises to consolidate learning into everyday supervisory practice.

Learning Outcomes:

At the completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

Describe the principles underlying reflective practice within a competency-based approach to supervision

Demonstrate establishing a frame and role induction for reflective supervision

Describe tools for providing feedback in supervision based on best-evidence

Demonstrate alliance building and maintenance skills in supervision

Demonstrate providing reflective supervision, including mindful consideration, consolidation and providing feedback


The workshop utilises adult learning principle:

Pre-reading of key readings and preparation of reflective material from participant’s own supervisory experience (one page Notable Incident)

Discussion of participants workshop goals and relevant previous experience

Small group discussions of key concepts

Interactive didactic presentation of evidence-based content

Live demonstrations

Experiential peer group activities

Larger group reflections of key content and learning from exercises


There are three (3) methods of evaluation to help participants to consolidate workshop materials, and to ensure that participants have demonstrated competence:

Demonstration of reflective practice via preparation of Notable Incident from supervision

Demonstration of knowledge via achieving at least 80% on a post-workshop assessment task (6 questions)

Demonstration of reflective supervision skills and attitudes via achieving at least 80% on the Leeds Alliance in Supervision Scale from a peer following an extended experiential exercise
