Class Description

This unit introduces students to the principles and practice of peer and group supervision which complement individual ministry supervision. Students will be helped to grow in the skills of facilitating peer and group supervision. Students will learn how peer and group supervision can: (i) optimise learning processes during initial formation, and (ii) provide supervisees with opportunities for ongoing professional development in their ministry practice.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this unit, it is expected that students will be able to:

  1. define and differentiate between peer and group supervision;
  2. analyse current models of peer and group supervision, and relate theories of peer and group supervision to their own ministry setting;
  3. demonstrate an understanding of the contemplative stance to supervision, parallel processes, transference and counter-transference as they apply to peer and group supervision;
  4. articulate their own framework of peer and group supervision supported by current literature and research;
  5. evaluate their strengths and areas for growth in the provision of peer and group supervision in the light of feedback from lecturers and fellow students.
