PACFA requirements for Peer Supervision

The requirements in relation to Peer Supervision were updated on the Form to reflect the definition of Peer Supervision contained in the PACFA Training Standards 2012.

Peer supervision – The 10 hours of supervision can be peer supervision only if practitioners have been listed as Clinical Registrants with PACFA continuously for at least 5 years. Peer supervision is a formal process where clinicians contract to provide collegial critiquing and enhancement of each other’s clinical work. Colleagues or peers work together for mutual benefit, rotating the roles of supervisor and supervisee. Peer supervision can be undertaken as a dyad or within a small group of no more than 6 members.
