Group Supervision & Reflective Practice Masterclass


This workshop reviews the basic components of supervision, locates group supervision and reflective practice within a competency-based framework, introduces evidence-based and practice-informed principles of group process and group supervision, and provides participants with a framework for (peer) group supervision practice, together with opportunity for consolidation through experiential exercises.

Learning Outcomes:

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

  • Describe the principles underlying group supervision and reflective practice within a competency-based approach to supervision
  • Demonstrate knowledge of evidence-based and practice-informed principles of processes within group supervision
  • Demonstrate skills in establishing a peer supervision group, and then leading group participants through a number of group supervision tasks
  • Demonstrate the use of reflective feedback and evaluation of group process


The workshop utilises adult learning principles:

  • 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 learnings from exercises
