Event number: 19314
6.5 CPD hours
APS Institute CPD


This PsyBA-approved supervisor training Master class includes a review of the group process literature and guides participants through a range of experiential exercises that demonstrate implementation of group process ideas and specific application to the group supervision context. Self-reflection exercises further deepen understanding of group processes during the workshop. Structures to support effective peer group supervision are discussed.

Learning Outcomes

At the completion of the workshop, participants should be able to:
- Outline evidence-based and practice-informed principles of group process
- Demonstrate implementation and application of those principles to the supervision context
- Demonstrate the utilisation of self-reflection to deepen understanding of group processes
- Demonstrate skills for working through in large and small groups


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.
