Approach to Supervision:
Greg likes to take a practical approach to supervision – problem solving and skill development are key goals. Self-reflection and theoretical perspectives are also important. All of these form part of the core competencies required by the Psychology Board of Australia.
Peer and Group Supervision
The PsyBA has recognised group supervision as an appropriate tool for provisional psychologists.
Once a psychologist has completed their formal supervised training, they are still required to engage in discussion about issues arising in their practice with a colleague as part of their ongoing continuing professional development (CPD) for ten of the 30 hours per year.
This is called peer consultation and has a less hierarchical relationship than that of supervision. The psychologist who is being consulted, can count these hours towards CPD.
The Mindful Hub offers peer consultation, group supervision (for current 4+2 and 5+1 students) and simulated role play sessions (for current 4+2 and 5+1 students) via zoom.
