School of Health Sciences Research-Based Clinical Supervision (RBCS) masterclass


The University of Nottingham welcomed 24 health professionals attending a full-day Resilience-Based Clinical Supervision (RBCS) masterclass on 29 October 2018. The masterclass is part of the University’s Continued Professional Development (CPD) initiative. It was designed and convened by Dr Gemma Stacey, Associate Professor from School of Health Sciences with the support from the Continued Professional Development team.

Resilience Based Clinical Supervision (RBCS) is underpinned by compassion focused therapy which explicitly focuses on the way in which emotions motivate our response to a situation and how we can learn strategies to mediate this response to achieve a desired outcome. The masterclass aims to enable participants to develop competencies, which facilitate their self-care and promote the flow of compassion to themselves and

consequently others. The recognition of the external influences on individual wellbeing is emphasised to analyse how the personal, relational and organisational factors contribute.

In the masterclass, brief formal presentations/mini lectures, experiential learning groups, small group work, scenario planning and role-play with short Q&A sessions were used to empower participants so that they could utilise their knowledge and skills in their workplace. One of the course participants commented, ‘The content was thought provoking; the course was relevant and rewarding; I thoroughly enjoyed the session and very much look forward to putting it into practice.

Jason Feehily, Head of CPD Services, said: ‘’We were delighted to see the popularity of the masterclass among health professionals and its great impact as the participants will be in a position to cascade their knowledge to others within their organisation”.
