Structured Peer Group Supervision for community working

Anna Zoli, Jacqueline Akhurst

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


Structured Peer Group Supervision (SPGS) has been shown to be an excellent complement to the learning that takes place in individual supervision, and appears to promote psychology students’ learning from each other in a different way due to the collaborative nature of the interactions. This structured model is focused on a 'case', and is designed to enable a solution-focused exploration and discussion. It has great potential not only for casework, but also for both community and research applications.

Currently, a DVD of the model is available in English based on a UK university. However, we would like to take the opportunity of an International Conference of Community Psychology to offer a workshop to a more varied audience, and to enable participants to learn about and trial the model first hand. We are also keen on collecting feedback on how participants think the model works in practice for them. We believe that this would be an asset for the training of psychologists and community workers, and to provide additional resources based on co-operative learning.
