Lesson Info

There is a strong and well-established relationship between the role of supervision in the management of burnout and compassion fatigue, particularly in the context of psychologists and therapists. The one day AHPRA approved supervision masterclass will allow participants to recognise, develop and apply the foundational principals of recognising and supporting their supervisees in the management of burnout within the context of a supervisory relationship. The ACT model is a well-established therapeutic modality which has been applied across disciplines and clinical presentations with high efficacy. This model has been used consistently within burnout prevention frameworks and in using supervision to support supervisees, and throughout the workshop we will focus on aspects of ACT, but also compassion focused therapies to support supervisees. The supervisory relationship is one which allows direct opportunities to work with clinicians to ensure that they are addressing the complex and complicated factors which lead to burnout, whilst providing a nurturing environment in which to explore appropriate interventions and strategies. However, despite being well placed to support supervisees in the management of burnout, it is identified that this is an area which supervisors will neglect in the relationship. For supervisees, they may not be cognisant of the early warning signs and processes around burnout, but these will likely be evident in supervision if the supervisor is aware of them. Supervisee burnout has significant impacts across multiple domains including client care and professional concerns (caseload management, complexity of interventions etc) as well as having potential for long lasting impacts across the therapist’s career. In the Masterclass participants can expect the following; • An exploration of burnout and the alignment with supervision processes. • Mapping of presentations of burnout onto the Supervision Competencies and how these can be applied. • Addressing how to identify and manage burnout in the supervisory relationship - set up and ongoing processes. • How to support the supervisee in assessing and formulating their experience of burnout from an ACT and CFT perspective as an iterative process. • Implementing reflective practice from an ACT perspective. • Troubleshooting the management of burnout in supervision.
