2019 offerings

The School of Psychology offered a series of supervision workshops for Senior Clinical Psychologists; these are broadly developmental and build on each other over the years.  Twenty places were available in each workshop.  Please also note that you must have completed Level 1 and Level 2 before you are allowed entry to Levels Intermediate and Advanced (Levels 3, 4, & 5).

The early levels (Levels 1 & 2) are an introduction to supervision and especially useful for new supervisors.  The Workshops cover areas such as understanding the role of the supervisor and supervisee, contracting (practical and psychological) the UCD programme and structure of review/evaluation and how to build a self-reflective space for the trainee.

Supervision Level 1 & 2:  Wednesday 27th November 2019, Facilitators: Sara Hollwey and Niamh Clarke: Introduction to Supervision (Click HERE to Book)

Levels 3 and 4 are focused on deepening the supervisory relationship, including looking at the different levels of supervision and building the internal supervisor and capacity for compassionate overview, the challenges of feedback and evaluation.

Supervision Level 3 & 4: Thursay 28th November 2019 Facilitators: Sara Hollwey and Niamh Clarke: Intermediate (Click HERE to Book)

Levels 5 workshops are individually organized around specific topics, including conflict in the supervisory relationship, power and rank issues in supervision, the disturbing other as a noble friend in supervision, Process Supervision, supervising transference and countertransference, empowering the supervisee for self–reflective practice. This year the focus will be on Process Supervision.
