Supervision Foundations

This unit provides a framework for reflection, action and learning in the ministry of supervision. It seeks to equip practicing pastors to work as supervisors for ordination candidates and ministers-in-formation. The theory and practice of supervision will be explored through group work and theoretical input. Group work will offer the opportunity to practice supervision with class peers and receive constructive feedback. Theoretical input will address issues of goal setting, case studies and evaluation with ordination candidates, developing feedback and intervention skills, an introduction to key psychological aspects including projection, power and ethics in supervision.
