Registration is closed

These bi-monthly 2-hour supervision sessions will give senior art therapists who are approved supervisors the opportunity to explore and develop how they supervise other art therapists.

Fran will encourage countertransference art making, clinical case presentations and workforce consultations as a framework for the sessions. Within this framework the following topics are likely to be explored:

  • Boundaries, creativity and ethics in arts based supervision
  • The novel and complex practice of working with art therapy images
  • Promoting clinical judgement and expertise in context of unpredictable and unstable work environments
  • Case studies of supervision dilemmas

NOTE: This event is open to Approved Supervisors ONLY

What do we do if some in the group supervise or are supervised by others in the group?
Once the event is full we will email all registrants to let them know who is attending to see if anyone has any boundaries issues with anyone else in the group (one participant supervises another participant for example). If there are boundaries issues and someone wishes  to withdraw, we will then go to the waiting list to select a new person from there and ask the same question again of the group to ensure boundaries are kept and all feel comfortable to participate.

Cancellation Policy
When you register and pay to attend one of our events, you are holding a space on our calendar that is no longer available to other members. In order to be respectful of your fellow members and the presenter, please email Michelle as soon as you know you will not be able to attend the event. We keep our events as affordable as possible and need to pay presenters the fee they request. While we understand sometimes urgent matters come up, if registrants cancel at the last minute, we struggle to pay presenters. A full refund will be given if the cancellation occurs more than 24 hours before the event. If the cancellation occurs less than 24 hours before the event, 50% of your registration fee will be refunded only to defray our costs.
