This PsyBA-approved supervisor training master class deals with the requirements for establishing a Board-approved supervision plan for endorsement and with methods of developing core competencies through registrar supervision that are consistent with the expertise expected of entry-level endorsed practitioners.
Methods for developing and evaluating registrars’ advanced skills relating to the core competencies (as per the Psychology Board of Australia’s Guidelines on Areas of Practice Endorsement) are provided.
The role of supervisors in developing registrars’ CPD programs is also canvassed.
At the completion of the workshop, participants should be able to:
- Outline the requirements of a supervision plan for endorsement
- Outline methods for developing core competencies in supervisees, as expected of entry-level endorsed psychologists
- Demonstrate strategies for developing and evaluating registrars’ advanced skills relating to the core competencies
- Describe the role of supervisors in developing the registrars’ CPD program
Master class, Part 4 has been developed for psychologists who want to maintain their status as a Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA)-approved supervisor (principal or secondary). Psychologists who are not currently a PsyBA-approved supervisor can use this workshop for general CPD purposes, but cannot use this workshop to gain supervisor approval.
