What has been said about AASW Advanced Supervision Program?
"Whilst I have been providing group and individual supervision ... for a while now, I felt a real, positive shift in my approach to facilitating the reflective practice discussions, setting up an emotionally safe space for participants and utilizing the practice models more effectively. The feedback from participants was very positive which ultimately reinforces the value of my increased knowledge and confidence gained through completing the supervision course."
“I really valued the differing mediums - from the well-constructed e-learning modules, the provision of resources, the accountability of providing feedback and engaging in discussions as well as the facilitator-guided discussions. It culminated in feeling more professionally confident in my knowledge and experience.”
"The training was extremely thorough, interactive and allowed space for knowledge and reflections to be shared."
"Participating in this training has given me the space for self-reflection as a supervisor - this is important in the process of change - it has also provided me with a clearer direction of the areas I would like to focus on so that I can be better in my role of supervisor."
