Dear colleagues,

you are kindly invited to

the 1st Conference on Supervised Practice of Psychologists,

which will be held from August 25–26, 2017, in Hotel Lev in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

A successfully completed one-year supervised practice is one of the criteria for developing competences needed for practicing psychology and for obtaining the European Certificate in Psychology – EuroPsy. Different models of supervised practice are present in different countries, and there are differences in supervisor’s practice and training. The aim of the conference is to present the current state of affairs in supervised practice and to exchange the expertise and good practice between different countries. The conference also aims to set the ground for future developments and harmonization in the field of supervised practice of psychologists in Europe.
