Consideration of the limits to supervision
Exploration of boundaries in supervision
Participants practising building supervision relationships

• Domains of supervision introduced:

Formative or educative
Restorative or supportive
• Considering the use of power and authority in supervision and through the use of the supervision domains
Afternoon session • Domains of supervision explored through:
Discussion on participants’ experiences of supervision domains
Consideration of how the domains intersect
Participants practising implementing the domains of supervision
Feedback from peers on the simulated activity
• Respectfully acknowledging and working with diversity and difference in clinical supervision
• Practising the provision of constructive feedback followed by feedback from peers on the simulated activity
• Practising ‘authentic’ and ‘challenging’ supervision conversations, including informing a student their performance is not meeting the required standard; this was followed by feedback from peers on the simulated activity
• Consolidation of learning with participants sharing ideas for their future supervision practice
