Supervision in turbulent times

The Cairnmillar Institute

1st Biennial Conference in Professional Supervision 
‘Supervision in turbulent times’

Join us for our first biennial conference in professional supervision. Hosted by the Cairnmillar Institute, this online conference will explore a variety of issues that supervisors need to consider in contemporary supervision practice.

Drawing on the theme of ‘turbulent times’, this conference will encourage participants to think about how the work of supervisors has changed in recent times, and how they can best meet these new challenges. While the theme of ‘turbulence’ doesn’t solely relate to the COVID crisis, the pandemic has certainly presented us with an opportunity to reflect on supervision in the context of increasing levels of psychopathology and service demand. Accordingly, we invite presenters and delegates who are keen to contribute to conversations around how these progressively busy and turbulent times are impacting on our work and supervision practices.

The conference will feature:
Keynote speakers, workshops, invited address and individual presentations including case studies. Q and A will be available at each presentation. Breakout rooms may be used for the workshops.

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

Discussion of supervision case studies.
How to teach/develop reflective practice skills.
Identifying risks and knowing boundaries for new supervisors.
Incorporating deliberate practice and supervision.
Prevention of supervisor burnout.
Procedural justice and using the ‘F’ word – Fail.
Supervising the traumatised supervisee.
Sustaining quality supervision: Establishing a ‘supervisor’ Community of Practice.
Challenges, gaps and opportunities for research in supervision.

Dr Zoe Krupka: Are we really in this together? Rethinking the boundary between supervision and therapy.
Prof George Habib: How can psychotherapy outcomes research and the common factors informs what happens in supervision? 
Ms Kaye Frankcom: Delivering better outcomes for practitioners and their clients: The role of deliberate practice in supervision
A/Prof James Courtney: Clinical supervision of trauma practitioners, considerations in establishing a supervisory framework

Many other choices of presentations will be offered.
