This workshops series aims to facilitate the development of APDs’ provision of supervision service to APD supervisees in Australia. It will be the first of its kind for Australian APDs. The overarching goal of this training is to support a culture of supervision in Australian Dietetics by helping to build a community of confident, professional and enthusiastic supervisors. This event (run over four half days online) is scheduled to run in Aug/Sept and will likely repeat in Nov/Dec 2021 to meet demand.
The content of the workshop series will cover the theoretical and practical essentials for the development of an ethical and effective supervision service. This is introductory, foundational training that aims to enhance the confidence and practical supervision skills of all participants, irrespective of supervision experience.
The supervision being taught in this workshop series is individual professional/clinical supervision. The workshop will not teach student supervision, managerial supervision or group supervision. The principal mode of supervisory practice focused on in the training will be reflective supervision however we will also cover the teaching, restorative and accountability tasks required in the delivery of effective supervision to practicing professionals.
What methods of learning will participants be engaged in?
The methods of learning will include small group discussions, case studies, experientials, reflective learning, videos and live demonstrations. All training methods will embody the skills and spirit of Motivational Interviewing. There will be an abundance of wisdom and practice based evidence amongst participants and the training is designed to pull that forward, affirm it and then build on it with dynamic learning opportunities and theoretical knowledge development. It will be a safe learning environment where attendees can have a go, make mistakes, triumph and find their own supervision style.

Attendees will be APDs already delivering supervision who may (or may not) have had some supervision training or APDs preparing to become supervisors with no training at all. Class size will be capped at 12 for the August-September workshop.
What will the registration fee be?
