BC Play Therapy Association holds workshops throughout the year to help advance the education of Play Therapy Practitioners and related professions. These usually revolve around a specialized speaker teaching a subject of importance to the advancement of play therapy as a therapeutic practice.
About the Workshop:
Most play therapists have experienced helpful and growth-promoting supervision in their process of becoming a therapist but have not directly learned or practiced how to engage in play therapy supervision under the guidance of an experienced supervisor.
This workshop aims at introducing theoretical knowledge related to the supervisory process. Topics such as understanding the roles and responsibilities of supervisors and supervisees; creating supervisory agreements; developing and nurturing supervisory relationships; using supervision models to guide practice; and developing awareness of supervisory methods will be considered. Legal and ethical considerations will also be discussed. You will be invited to apply your new knowledge to hypothetical supervisory cases.
- To develop a beginning understanding of various models of supervision
- To be able to distinguish between supervision and supervisory consultation
- To practice application of supervision models in a play therapy context
- To become aware of legal and ethical standards
