Clinical Group Supervision for Child Advocates
Every two months Child Advocates will receive clinical group supervision by a highly qualified and experienced counsellor. The Women's Council will be paying for the supervision through the Keeping Kids Safe project.
Clinical supervision highlights (Queensland Health, 2009, p4)
Clinical supervision that is well implemented is a key component in providing:
high quality mental health services with positive outcomes for consumers
a well trained, highly skilled and supported workforce
development, retention and motivation for the workforce.
High quality clinical supervision also contributes to:
meeting performance standards
meeting the expectations of consumers, carers and families
developing a learning culture in a changing health care environment.
The Clinical Supervision Guidelines for Mental Health Services:
provide guidance on the roles and responsibilities for the provision and receipt of clinical supervision
incorporate best practice principles and recognises the need for flexibility in the delivery of clinical supervision
provide separately for the recommended approaches of the different clinical professional groups
When is the next clinical group supervision?
The next group supervision session has been scheduled for the Child Advocate meeting in August.
