Supervisor Peer Support Program

Registration open from January 7 to March 1 (12 pm), 2022

Program Description

Given the current need for skilled and knowledgeable supervisors, this program is designed to give supervisors support and training for effective supervision in a facilitated group support program.

The Supervisor Peer Support Program provides a safe space for supervisors to come together and share experiences, knowledge, and ideas​ in a peer group ​with an expert facilitator who will focus each session on a key supervision issue.

The facilitator’s role is to: 

  • Create a safe and comfortable space, free of judgement​
  • Ensure everyone is participating​
  • Keep everyone on task​
  • Allow proper information to be understood and relayed effectively​
  • Provide ongoing support

Participants in the program will meet online for a two-hour session once a week for 8 weeks. The facilitators will use activities and techniques such as case studies, roleplaying, group discussion, small group work, videos, reflection questions, and homework to engage participants in each topic.

The topics for each session are: 

  • Defining supervision
  • Understanding and using different models and methods of supervision
  • Being an effective supervisor
  • Working from an anti-oppression framework
  • Managing conflict in the supervisory relationship
  • Roles and responsibilities for supervisors and supervisees
  • Ethical, legal, and risk management issues
  • Evaluation

Participants are expected to attend all 8 sessions and must communicate with their facilitator if a conflict arises.

Please note: You must already be qualified and working as a supervisor to participate in this workshop. This program is not intended to provide participants with CRPO supervisor requirements.
