QPASTT is a state-wide refugee trauma recovery service. We work with people who have a refugee like experience and run a range of interventions/programs to assist in trauma recovery – this includes individual and family counselling, youth work, community work and group work.
Putting refugee survivors of torture and trauma first guides everything that we do at QPASTT. We value kindness and dignity and we believe in positive futures. We believe that recovery from trauma is about justice and we strive to build opportunities so that survivors of torture and trauma can thrive and belong in our community.
Experienced group supervisors to offer group supervision on either Group Work or Reflective Practice (preferably different facilitators for each supervision), with the following characteristics:
Our service currently supports about 1800 clients through counselling, group and youth work interventions. We run on average 8-10 groups with adults and young people each “term” (we use school terms to schedule our work).
For the Group Work supervision, we are needing someone to facilitate a safe space where group workers can share skills, support depth of practice of group work process, discuss group dynamics and work through some of the more advanced skills of facilitating groups for trauma survivors.
For the Reflective Practice supervision, we are needing someone to facilitate a safe space for staff across the direct practice areas (adult counselling, child and young person counselling, family counselling, youth work) to be able to share and reflect on practice (e.g., Kolb’s reflective framework; Proctor model of reflective group supervision). This supervision is not focused on case reviews or formulation as this is provided in internal supervision and line management supports.
It will be the responsibility of the group supervisor to establish the group agreements, establish safety, manage group dynamics and process. It is anticipated that each group supervision will occur quarterly.
We expect 4 x 90 minute sessions be facilitated across the calendar year (i.e., quarterly), however will pay for 2 hours of work to ensure time to arrive and settle pre – and post the session.
Location: Brisbane (QPASTT Woolloongabba office)
Sessional Rate: $250/hour
Frequency of Sessions: 4 x 90 minute sessions (offered quarterly across a calendar year).
Contract: Casual (fee for service); reviewed after delivery of first 4 sessions
