AAOS CPD Brisbane Sat 14th October 2017

Courageous Conversations in Supervisory Practice


There are conversations with others in our professional practices that we tell ourselves we need to have in order to maintain appropriate standards of care, ensure safety and guard each person’s integrity. Yet we delay or avoid these conversations, hoping that the situation will be resolved somehow, without an intervention. 

This workshop will: 

  • Help participants identify those “difficult” conversations
  • Explore ways of gaining clear perceptions of the dynamics of the situation
  • Provide participants with the tools for constructive engagement

The workshop will be interactive, making use of the experiences of participants. We will engage in not only knowing the tools, but in unpacking the toolbox, practicing the use of specific tools for specific settings.




FACILITATOR: Dr Michelle Mulvihill


Dr. Michelle Mulvihill has gathered wisdom and mastered skills in psychology, counselling, adult learning and training, leadership and organisational development. As both an organisational and counselling psychologist, her work often takes her to spaces where differences can quickly erupt into conflict, if not dealt with properly. As a supervisor of clinical and pastoral work, Michelle continues to integrate her learning and practice to identify and focus on what practitioners need to learn in order to engage in effective and satisfying work
