Offered at 1 locations
Supervision is the discipline of enabling professional practitioners—including social workers, counsellors, spiritual directors, ministers, principals—to reflect on their practice, become mindful of their blind spots, gain ever-deepening insight, and become open to opportunities for personal and professional growth. The Australian Association of Supervision speaks of supervision "as a contractual, relational, collaborative process, which facilitates the ethical and professional practice of the supervisee."
Supervisors not only require practical skills, but also need to develop a framework within which to understand their practice of supervision. This framework must emerge from authentic, ongoing and critical self-reflection, engage contemporary psychological paradigms responsibly, be situated within clear and overt ethical boundaries, and take into account the meaning-making dimension of human beings—spirituality.
The Graduate Certificate in Supervision enables you to develop basic knowledge, understanding and skills suited to the ethical, self-aware and safe practice of supervision in any number of fields, including health, education and social service settings.
Graduates may be eligible to apply for membership of the Australian Association of Supervision.
