Program Description

The FPM Supervision Course prepares skilled practitioners to be able to facilitate reflective practice supervision with other practitioners who apply the FPM in their work. It acknowledges reflective practice as a key ongoing learning and development tool for the supervisee and supervisor reliant on a respectful partnership.

Eligibility requirements:

  • Practitioners in leadership roles who have completed the Family Partnership Model foundation course, have used the approach in clinical practice and who have a role or are responsible for leading reflective supervision for colleagues or staff who are applying FPM in practice (e.g., Working Together for the early years; Early Childhood Inclusion Services; Child and Family Learning Centres).
  • Professionals/mental health practitioners with considerable clinical knowledge and experience of working with the models and concepts contained within the Family Partnership approach, who have responsibility for supervising other staff, either individually or in groups, who are using the approach in their practice.
Program Outcomes

This course equips participants with an understanding of the functions, processes and skills required to provide supervision (individual and groups) to practitioners in the style of the Family Partnership Model (Davis & Day, 2010; Day, Ellis & Harris, 2015). It encourages participants to reflect on their own experiences and learn to deal effectively with new supervisory situations and to find new ways of managing familiar challenges (White, 2002:11).

On completion of this course, participants receive certification from the Centre for Parent and Child Support (UK), of having completed the FPM Reflective Supervision level training, enabling them to facilitate FPM focused supervision.
