Masterclass series in Supervision and Coaching launched for 2005.

The Centre for Supervision Training (CST) has just released information on its new series of Masterclass workshops for Autumn 2005.

Since October 2003 CST Masterclasses have attracted over 800 professionals from the world of Counselling and Coaching in public and private sectors.

The Centre is led by Michael Carroll, Ph.D. who is a renowned academic force in the development of professional standards in counselling and coaching and the application of effective supervision.
Commenting on the new series he said:
‘Our new series tackles hot topics that impact right across the helping professions. There is growing concern for the welfare of practitioners working in critical occupations. There are ethical challenges faced by those that coach and supervise in the ‘corporate sector’. Working with my colleague Dr Jo Clarke, I have chosen this year to tackle the issue of Manipulation in the workplace. This is a major generic issue faced by so many of us in our daily lives including teachers, managers, counsellors, coaches, supervisors and other practitioners in the public and private sectors.’
CST is to repeat two Masterclasses from 2004 because so many qualified counsellors, psychologists and helping professionals are wanting to add coaching to their portfolio and demand continues to increase for Supervision in Counselling.

‘Counsellor to coach – crossing the bridge successfully’ Masterclass assumes a professional background in psychological training and has been credited as inspirational by many of its attendees.

‘Becoming an Effective Supervisor’. Masterclass provides methodologies to successfully manage single and multiple supervision. Feed back from 2004 claims the workshop has enriched and elevated both the Supervisor’s and the Supervisee’s approach to learning and development.

The three new workshops are:
‘Heroes or Victims?’ Staying buoyant in high risk jobs addressees the management of risk for practitioners and other professionals working on potentially harmful cases such as the detection of sexual offences or rehabilitation of offenders.

Round Your Little Finger: understanding and managing manipulation, all professionals are vulnerable in the work place to manipulative ‘clients’. this two day workshop reveals what it is, how to spot it and what to do about it.

Acting for the Best : Ethics for Executive Coaches is aimed at purchasers and coaching practitioners and is a direct response to concerns over quality in corporate coaching and its ethical practice.
