For Provisional Psychologists on the 4 + 2 Pathway, 5 + 1 Pathway, Clinical Registrars and Early Career Psychologists in Australia

Brain Training Australia offers a range of online group supervision services to meet the requirements of Provisional Psychologists undertaking:

  • 4 + 2 provisional psychologist pathway
  • 5 + 1 provisional psychologist pathway
  • clinical psychology registrars seeking endorsement
  • early career psychologists and health practitioners for CPD purposes

Our online group supervision services are available Australia-wide and allows for a cost-effective and efficient way to meet supervision requirements and an opportunity for you to connect and network with other Provisional Psychologists. We are passionate about providing a nurturing learning experience where psychologists are supported to learn and grow into the profession. 

Our online group supervision is delivered during business hours, primarily aimed at lunch periods, so as not to eat into early career psychologists’ personal time.

If you sign up for a group session and, for whatever reason, are unable to attend, we will provide you with a copy of the presentation slides and handout materials from the supervision session within 48 hours of the session date and time, which you can instead count as Professional Development hours instead.

How do I get started?

To count your group supervision hours towards your internship plan, your first step is to add Kristie Clarke to your internship plan as a Secondary Supervisor, as Kristie runs all of our online group supervision services.

You can add a secondary supervisor by submitting a formal letter to AHPRA via the online upload services.  The letter will need to outline the name and registration number of your new secondary supervisor (Kristie) and it must be signed by your Primary Supervisor.

To make your life a little easier (and we understand how demanding provisional psychologist internships can be!) we have done some of the work for you so you will only need to complete three simple steps:

1. Once you book in for any of our Group Supervision sessions, you automatically recieve a booking confirmation email and within that, a link to complete a “Add a Secondary Supervisor Form.” Just pop in your details and when you click submit a copy of the letter that AHPRA requires will be sent to your email.  

2. Email this letter to your Primary Supervisor for signing.

3. Submit signed version to AHRPA. 

It really is that simple and straightforward.  

For Professional Development only?

If you are just wanting to access these sessions for Professional Development hours then you don’t need to go through the adding Krisite as a secondary process and you can just book in for your session and attend.  We send you the session content including the presentation slides and handouts so you can review in your own time, at your own pace.
