In the realm of applied sport psychology, supervision holds a vital role in ensuring adherence to ethical standards, fostering professional growth, and delivering high-quality client care. Within FEPSAC, we view supervision as an ongoing process throughout one’s career, making it a requirement not only for initial certification but also for recertification of FEPSAC certified Specialists in Applied Sport Psychology. With this in mind, we are pleased to offer you an interview featuring a distinguished author and practitioner.

During this session, we aim to delve into various aspects of supervision: its definition, significance, benefits for all involved parties, the procedural framework, avenues for finding suitable supervisors, and the desirable qualities or attributes to seek in a supervisor. The interview will span 30 minutes, followed by a 15-minute Q&A segment, allowing attendees to pose additional inquiries for further clarity and insight.
