Supervision in coaching psychology: Professional practice day

Following on from a successful professional practice day in October 2011 this year’s workshop is on supervision in coaching psychology. The topics of professional practice days are very important to all coaching psychologists and so SGCP members pay half the usual workshop fee for this event.

The aim of the Professional Practice event is to provide a generic framework to structure your own approach to supervision. We will provide examples and exercises to help you shape the model that works when you are able to draw upon your existing expertise. We will also consider what happens when clients present the situations that are outside your expertise. We will explore this for problem areas of which chaotic or traumatic situations are one of examples. 
All coaches and coaching psychologists will come across clients who have a trauma in their experience which impacts current events. Supervisors can learn to offer safe practice in such areas as well as create rituals to protect themselves. Participants should leave the session with a better understanding of their own practice as well as specific approaches to extend it.
