This course constitutes seven hours of formal training in supervision to fulfill Board of Psychology (BOP) and Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) regulations in California.

Working with difficulty supervisees, creative supervisee selection, addressing unconscious bias, supervisee evaluation, parallel process, art and technique in supervision, and case evaluation perspectives are a few of the topics that will be explored in the “Beyond the Basics” program.

In addition, the “Clinical Supervision: Beyond the Basics” program is designed to expand and enhance the content of the “Principles of Clinical Supervision” course by providing analysis of a supervision video and real vignettes that illustrate many of the concepts particularly how to deal with difficult supervisees. Each video clip will be accompanied by a discussion highlighting one or more supervision issues surfaced in the clip. You will also explore supervision vignettes using a practical and powerful model of case evaluation that helps surface potential interventions and issues that might emerge from a wide range of supervisory situations.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand and differentiate supervision from other professional “supervisory” relationships
2. Utilize the relationship as a vehicle for supervisee growth
3. Understand one’s own sense of being as a supervisor
4. Recognize levels of risk
5. Differentiate roles and responsibilities of supervisors
6. Identify and teach the core therapy skills as part of the supervision process
