Group Supervision x 3 hours
Location: Online via Zoom
Time: 6pm – 9pm
The session provides 3 hours of group supervision, and will cover the following:
• Overview and purpose of the test
• Supervisor will demonstrate administration of the core subtests
• Guidelines for simulated assessments
• Brief overview of scoring, interpretation and report-writing
• Report template and sample assessments provided
There will be a 10 minute break approximately half-way through the session.
Groups are limited to a maximum of 5 participants, who can also arrange to use the test materials when they are ready to administer the assessment for their supervisor to observe and assess competency. Test hire (Wednesday to Sunday) is included in the cost (pick up from eastern suburbs of Sydney). Each test needs to be proficiently administered twice in order to meet the Board’s competency requirements.
Please note that you will require a strong internet connect and decent screen size (minimum 14″) in order to fully benefit from this group
Tuesday 22nd February 2022, 6-9pm (Sydney time)
This group has been designed for provisional psychologists completing the 4+2 pathway to registration and will provide the information and access to materials so you can begin working on the tasks required to fulfil competency for a cognitive assessment. Please note that attendance at the group will not in itself meet the 4+2 competency requirements, which need to be assessed and signed off by the principal or secondary supervisor. We are happy to assess competence (by arrangement) through secondary supervision, for a fee of $140 per hour.
The group provides a demonstration of test administration and guidelines in completing an assessment with real or simulated clients. Participants are then encouraged to access the test materials to practice and gain competence in the administration, scoring of the WMS-IV.
As per APHPA guidelines: Each test must be administered, scored and interpreted as many times as necessary to achieve competence. Each test must then be competently demonstrated at least twice to a supervisor during direct observation of practice with real clients, or (where appropriate) in realistic simulated learning environments.
