APS College of Forensic Psychology - Supervision Workshop

Format Workshop
Presenters Anita McGregor
Description Recent changes to supervision requirements mean that those on the Psychology Board of Australia's list of approved supervisors on 30 June 2013, can continue to be a supervisor for up to five years. However, those who do not have, or did not require Board approval previously (e.g., Psychologists who provide supervision for higher degree placement only), will need to apply to be added to the list before 1 July 2013 in order to continue providing supervision (using form ABAS - 76: Application to act as a Board approved supervisor). This supervision workshop is intended to: a) provide professional development relevant to the supervision of provisional psychologists undertaking an endorsement training program; and b) help facilitate the completion of ABAS-76. Participants in the workshop will complete a 4 hour face-to-face training session, be provided with a reading list, and complete a brief competency-based evaluation.

Learning Objectives:
As a result of attending this workshop participants will be able to -
1.Identify the supervisorial requirements set by APHRA.
2.Understand a supervision model with a particular focus on the supervision of students.
3.Describe and understand the various components of supervision including: contracts; responsibilities; supervision planning and expectations; constructive feedback; and the termination of supervision.

Anita was trained at the University of Alberta and University of Calgary and practiced in Canada as a clinical and forensic psychologist, both in private and public practice. She has been in private practice since 1995 working with couples and individuals, conducting risk assessments and providing training for a variety of organizations including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Alberta Child Welfare. She worked for over a decade as the primary psychologist in southern Alberta Parole office for the Correctional Services of Canada where she specialized in the assessment and treatment of violent offenders. ??

Teaching and coordinating the clinical training of the graduate students in the program has included training, supervision as well as developing and co-ordinating clinical placements. Recently, Anita has taken on the clinical directorship of a joint project between UNSW and CSNSW (Corrective Services NSW) where the students are trained onsite in the City Probation and Parole office (Wentworth Forensic Clinic).
