Getting the Most Out of Supervision

Would you like to get more from your own supervision?

Are you keen to have a better understanding of how to prepare and drive your supervision?

Would you like to be clearer on your own learning goals to more strategically drive your professional and career development?


Supervisees aren’t always clear about what is expected of them or understand how to drive supervision or articulate their learning goals. We also don’t always understand what to expect from our supervisors and how to ask for what is needed in supervision.


Participating in supervision is a great opportunity to build clinical and professional wisdom and skills, to build confidence, professional identity and to maximise professional learning and development. Being able to lead your own supervision will help you to develop supervision skills for a time when you are supervising others.


This full day session provides the frameworks and skills to assist supervisees to maximise their learning. The session provides practical skill building opportunities for supervisee's at various levels of experience; including:


  • understanding the context of supervision as part of an on-going learning and development journey

  • skills in articulating learning goals in supervision

  • supervision that is focussed on the supervisee’s learning needs

  • understanding how to navigate proactive and reactive learning goals

  • ways to build an engaging supervisory relationship

  • how to contribute to a solid contracting process

  • how to prepare for and feel empowered to drive supervision

This training program will be delivered by Renee Arnott and Michelle Bihary, and is based on the training developed by Michelle Bihary over many years, throughout Australia and New Zealand.

As well as running this workshop through The Delta Centre, Michelle delivers in house supervision workshops, including presentations for supervisees on Getting the most out of Supervision, Contracting for Supervision, Supervision and Advanced Supervision Skills. 

Michelle's Getting the Most Out of Supervision Feedback

I just wanted to say thank you so very much for providing such a rich, positive and meaningful learning experience for me. It has been the most valuable professional development training I have attended.
I have a very long way to go, but have already started to use some of the frameworks and questions in my supervision sessions this morning and can already feel my confidence growing, knowing that I have so many more resources I can draw

Lauren MacGregor | Speech Pathologist

Thank you for the 2 day workshop last week. What an action-packed, interactive, thoughtful and helpful course you ran.  
I had heard it was good, but it was better than I imagined.  I think the way you taught us was inspired and so very engaging. 

Dianne Singleton | Occupational Therapist
