AAOS CPD Sydney Fri 27 October 

“Working with Difference in Supervision”

Note: This event will follow the AGM (9am to 10am)


“Membership of the dominant group means that we will be unable to see many of the injustices which are so glaringly obvious to those that are affected by them..”     McLean (C. 2002: 70)

Given that both therapy and supervision encompass social power, we invite you to help us consider how we can best support and empower supervisees from a range of experiences and backgrounds. We have invited a panel of senior practitioners, representing different aspects of diversity, to respond to the question: “What do I need to know about you in order to supervise you?” They have been asked to consider this question both from an individual and a group supervision perspective. The panel’s answers will be followed by group discussion and experiential exercises designed to help broaden our perspectives and enhance our work as supervisors
